Sani Brown 200m participation is not sent off
Sani Brown Abdel Hakim, who has a Japanese record of 9 seconds 97 with 100 meters of men on land, has decided not to participate in the 200 meters at the world championship opening in Qatar this month.
This was revealed on the 7th in a training camp held in Yamanashi by coach Hirohiro Doe, who is in charge of the Olympics in the short distance section of the Japan Athletics Federation.
According to Tsuchie coach, when we talked with the University of Florida in the United States where Sani Brown is a member in July, there was an offer that he would like to concentrate on the world championships at 100 meters considering the condition. It means that you acknowledge it.
Sani Brown achieved two crowns of 100 meters and 200 meters in the previous Japanese championship, both of whom were decided to represent the world championship, but later the Japanese team's European expedition in July due to back and thigh pain Has forgotten to participate.
According to the Doe coach, it is possible to participate in a 400-meter relay, and Sani Brown is scheduled to be used as an anchor, so it is possible to spend time on baton practice locally by avoiding 200-meter participation. This will create an environment where you can concentrate on relays.
Coach Doe said, “It's a result of considering the burden because I'm 20 years old and my body isn't ready. There are 5 days between 100 meters and the relay, so I want to match the baton there.”
