No fairy tale end for heroic Makwala

Isaac Makwala’s run did not produce the fairy tale his fans –and neutrals- had hoped for after he finished sixth in the 200m final last night. But Makwala was already a hero although he finished as the World Championships’ seventh best man.

He had run a solo time trial on Wednesday night after ‘recovering’ from food poisoning to power into the semi finals, before he moved into the finals with a good run the same evening.

unheralded Turkish, Ramil Guliyev who clocked 20.09.

Botswana’s interest now shifts to the relays starting tomorrow with the men’s 4x400m still in with a shouting chance although the UK, France, Bahamas, Jamaica and the US pose a regular challenge.

It has been a barren campaign for rising Botswana thus far although all pointed to at least a medal at the early stages of the competition.

It will now remain a case of ‘what if’ after Makwala was ruled out of the 400m final due to a ‘medical’ condition in hugely controversial circumstances.
