Gold hopes in 800m women race dashed as Sheila Chepkosgei is disqualified

Kenya hopes in 800m women race were shattered after Sheila Chepkosgei was disqualified for lane infringement at the ongoing World U20 Championships at the Moi International Sports Centre in Kasarani, Nairobi.

Sheila who was a sure bet for gold as she had commanded her heat one race from start to finish has been denied to chance to proceed to semi-final. Brenda Chebet failed to keep her steam on as she had lead her her heat from the 200m splits to 600m split only to be passed over by Avery Person who took over 200m to finish to claim the pole position in 2:07.99 as the Kenyan finished in last position.
