The silverware came courtesy of 800m sensation, Nijel Amos who grabbed gold, in the process  dethroning Kenyan champion, David Rudisha in an intriguing race.  Morule told the media in Gaborone yesterday that despite the target, they were fully aware that the team was not well prepared.

“Yes we do agree that we did not give athletes top notch international standard preparations,” he said.   Responding to media questions, a contrite Morule said they set the target based on athletes’ current performances.
