Zimbabwe’s male relay team has qualified for World Relays Championships in Japan after completing the 100mX4 in 38.95 seconds, the 2nd fastest time in the world this year so far, at the Efika Athletics club championships in Botswana yesterday.

The boys: Tatenda Tsumba, Ngoni Makusha, Itayi Vambe and Dickson Kamungeremi each averaged 9.73 seconds over 100m, and were just less than a second shy of breaking the previous record of 39.16 seconds set in 2007 at the All Africa Games in Algeria.

The team now heads to the World Relays Championships set for Yokohama, Japan starting on the 12th of May 2019.

Speaking to the ZBC News, the quartet appealed for sponsorship and support, to enable them to participate in the Japan championships.
