Letsile Tebogo's world junior record set at the World Under-20 Championships held in Columbia last August has been ratified. World Athletics, the athletics governing body, confirmed the development today.

Last year World Athletics ratified another one of Tebogo’s 100m world Under-20 record which he broke at the World Athletics Championships in Eugene (Oregon, United States of America) in July.

Tebogo ran 9.94 secs in the men’s 100m heats to set a then-new world junior record. The world athletics governing body had to ratify the feat before it became official.
