Kilkenny Athletics Meeting 2020 (16th Aug)


Charles Okafor – 100m


With so many fixtures cancelled and strict limitations on numbers competing, it’s proving difficult to get a quality sprint race at the moment, so Charles Okafor made the relatively long journey to Kilkenny on Sunday morning 16th August for the Kilkenny Athletics Meeting. It was warm, overcast and very calm, so conditions were perfect for sprinting. Charles lined up as one of the top seeds in the 100m A race and didn’t disappoint with a terrific second place finish against some top class athletes that should feature in the upcoming National Seniors. His time was 11.18 seconds, close to his best, which is very encouraging given that he hasn’t run a 100m race since last summer, so is coming nicely into form.
