Athletics: Noa Bibi First Mauritian To Go Under 20 Seconds In 200 Meters

Must Read

A crazy weekend for Noa Bibi. National record in the 100 m in 10.03 sec and first Mauritian to go under 20 sec in the 200 m with a time of 19.89 sec.

Twenty-four hours were enough for Noa Bibi to impose his mark on the record books of Mauritian athletics. A slamming 19.89 sec in the 200 m (wind +1.3m/s) on this Sunday, July 10, which makes him the first Mauritian to run the 200 m under the mythical bar of 20 seconds. In the process, he erased Stephan Buckland’s record (20.06 sec – 27 August 2003). This time allows him to occupy the tenth place in the world ranking.

Noa Bibi
A dream weekend for Noa Bibi.

The day before he broke his own national record in the 100m, going from 10.12 seconds to 10.03 seconds. A progression of 9 hundredths in the space of six days.

Where will Noa Bibi stop? His participation in the World Athletics Championships in Oregon, USA from July 15 to 24 promises. The 10-second bar in the 100m for the Mauritian prodigy could fall and a place in the semi-finals of the 200m seems quite feasible.
