Akini Simbine won his 100m race in Székesfehérvár, Hungary, with a blistering run as he knocked 0.05sec off his own SA mark‚ which he’d set on the same track in 2016‚ and 0.01 off the African record.

Simbine was pleased to have finally conquered the continental mark‚ but there was still more to do. “I feel really great breaking the record. It’s something that I’ve been chasing for the longest time.
