Ugandan Athlete Shida Leni triumphs in Nairobi

Sports | The Northern Link UG | At the Athletics Kenya National Championships (26 -28 April), Shida Leni destroyed Kenyan opposition, by winning, on successive days, the W400m heats, semi-finals & final.

She easily won the final, with a Season Best’s time of 52.42 sec.

Shida has been coached, for the last 9 years, by the husband & wife coaching team of Kevin & Sue O’Connor. Kevin commented:

“It was cold & raining in Nairobi, which indicates she could have gone even faster today. Shida is the most determined and dedicated athlete I have ever coached. For example, at Silver Springs Hotel’s Espace Gym (which has kindly given Shida complimentary membership), she always tries to lift heavier weights during our weight-training sessions.
