Semangat Kesukanan

The once-in-two-year World Athletics Championship officialy started yesterday in Daegu South Korea. The good news about this year championship is, athletes who don't achieve either Standard A or B (the standards set to qualify for the championship)are given the opportunity to run in a preliminary round. The first three winners from each preliminary round will proceed to round 2 where they will compete with Standard A and B athletes (world class athletes like Usain Bolt etc). This video shows one of the preliminary rounds which was won by Malaysian sprinter (he proceed to round two but only managed 7th place). It's not the Malaysian athlete I'm interested in but the athlete in lane 7 :=)

Although I don't know French, I kinda understand what the commentators were talking about. The interview with the Lane 7 athlete is in the next video
