World outdoor champion Halimah Nakaayi ran a world leading time in the 800m race at the 6th edition of the Eure Athletics Meeting which is a World Athletics Indoor tour silver level that was held at the Jesse Owens Stadium in Val-de-Reuil (Eure).
Nakaayi slashed almost two seconds from her indoor personal best as she battled Olympian marathoner Tigist Girma from Ethiopian and her fellow country-mate Winnie Nanyondo, the 2014 Commonwealth Games bronze medallist.
The 27 year-old was on another mission as she surged with an electric speed to cross the line in the fastest time in the world indoors this season of 1:59.55.
She was followed by Girma who finished in a distant place in a time of 2:01.68.
Nanyondo closed the first three podium finishes in a time of 2:02.14.
