A good finish-Uganda finishes ISF games with 7 medals

Uganda finished the 19th edition of the International Schools Sports Federation (ISF) U-18 games in Normandy region in France with 2 gold, 1 silver and 4 bronze for a total of 7 medals.

The expected gold medals didn’t come by as Christine Nyawere and Loice Chekwemoi tumbled on the turf in their respective 400m and 1500m finals on a cold breezing morning in Caen and they could not match the conditions.

Uganda’s two bronze of the day came from Victor Chekwemoi who made a run of his life in the most competitive 1500m final, after beating three opponents on the final 100m stretch to come home 3rd on 3:57.67 minutes, behind France’s Yanis Mouline who took silver on 3:57.57 with Spain’s Felix Ronaldo winning gold with a 3:57:16 finish.

Uganda again won the Medley long relay bronze as the quartet of Fred Ambayo, Rajab Ibrahim, Dominic Klop and Ryamong Omara put up a good show to finish 3rd position in the seemingly teasing 2oom 4oom, 600m and 800m run
