Athletics: Tebogo, Fahnbulleh To Compete At Botswana Golden Grand Prix

Botswana’s fastest man, Letsile Tebogo, is set to compete at the Botswana Golden Grand Prix on April 29th, taking on some of the best athletes in the world such as Andre de Grasse, Joseph Fahnbulleh, and Alex Ogando in the men’s 200m event.

Tebogo, who holds the early-season World Lead (alongside Christian Coleman) at 20 seconds flat, will face a huge task against top athletes. At the top of the list is Fahnbulleh whose top end speed is now a familiar sight in athletics.

The 21-year-old has three races under his belt this season, including one where be stormed to a new Personal Best (PB) and Liberian 100m National Record (NR) of 9.98s, and with his first 100m coming together just fine, he will be the man to beat in Botswana.

Also in the field is the Olympic 200m Champion, Andre de Grasse, who will be running his first race of the season at that distance. He will be hoping this season to be make a bounce back from the lows of 2022 and get a good mark in to start this new season.

The field is a quality one and it includes Alex Ogando who was in flying form in 2022, setting multiple NRs for the Dominican Republic and making the World Championships final in the 200m, alongside Aaron Brown who like Tebogo, will also compete over 100m on the same day in Gaborone.

Completing the field is Anthony Pesela and Canadians Jerome Blake and Brendon Rodney.
