Thebe poised for glory

Bots Star Athlete: Baboloki ThebeBotswana’s 400 meter star runner, Baboloki Thebe is on a mission to cause
an upset in this year’s Diamond league competition as he chases
unprecedented glory.

Thebe’s heroics were felt during his Diamond League meetings in Oslo and
Stockholm. Thebe finished tops on Thursday in Norway clocking a time of
44.95 ensuring that he accumulated 8 points. On Sunday in Stockholm, Sweden
he produced a sterling performance to finish second in the race and
accumulate 7 points. Steven *Gardiner* of Bahamas won in 44.58 time.

The results mean that from the 3 Diamond League races, Thebe now leads the
pack with 22 points. Thebe is seconded by the Bahamas Gardiner with 16
points and on position 3 is USA athlete LaShwawn Merritt with 15 points.

In a brief interview with this publication, Thebe said that he was happy
with his performance saying the race was fine as he was under no pressure
and finished in the top three as intended.

“All in all I'm happy with my performance in the Scandinavian countries,
starting in Oslo where I finished on position one,’’he said.

Furthermore he said he did not want to go hard on himself as he was just
recovering from a recurring injury. “Well I am just recovering from a
recurring injury, so I did not want to go hard on myself, one step at a
time, diamond league circuit is very difficult, all athletes want to
accumulate valuable points so that they ultimately finish on top 8 and
proceed to the finals, hence the competition is very  high,’’ he said.

Thebe is vying for a top 8 finish that will see him through to the world
championships. The athlete expressed gratitude to his supporters.

“To Batswana, their support keeps me moving, it is amazing,’’he said.
