Gambian sprinter, Adama Jammeh has set his eyes on the All Africa Games claiming his aim is to win a medal in the Brazzaville event later this year.
He was speaking on Wednesday, September 2, after he returned from the 2015 IAAF World Athletic Championship in Beijing, China. Jammeh clocked 20:81 in the 200meters finishing sixth, a position not enough for a semi-final spot.
Adama Jammeh said he did not make the semifinal of the 200meters but was pleased with his performance setting his season best. According to him that is the ultimate objective of every sportsman and woman to break records being personal, national or international.
He added that his timing shows that he is improving thanks to the training camp he is undergoing at the IAAF High Performance Center (HPC) in Dakar, Senegal through a scholarship from the Gambia National Olympic Committee (GNOC).
Dilating on his first appearance at a World Championship, Adama said his performance was dented by stomach hitches he suffered two days before his event. He added that has affected him towards the end of the race.
The sprint sensation however told journalists that he will refocus his attention to the All Africa Games (AAG) in Congo Brazaville. Jammeh and Gina Bass will leave for Brazzaville on September 3.
