Olympic champion Pamela Jelimo impressive form carried on saturday the second day of the AK National Bank meeting in Mumias with a dominant display in the 400m.

Jelimo was undoubtedly the toast of toast of the sixth AK meeting with a winning time of 53.6 seconds outrunning Ugandan Agnes Aneno of Uganda (55.7) and third placed Catherine Nandi from Lanet who clocked 56.1.

She later teamed up with Aneno to win the 4 by 400m relay for Maximum Speed Development team in 3:41.6.

The world indoor champion who was using the races as part of her preparation for the next month’s opening round of the Samsung Diamond league meeting in Doha, improved on her 54.5 seconds time from Friday’s qualifying heats of the 400m.

World record holder David Rudisha skipped Saturday’s finals after his 45.8 seconds win in the 400m heats, paving way for Rugby star turned athlete Collins Omae to steal the show in 47.4 ahead of Moses Ngetich (47.4).

In the absence of the leading names in the 800m, Michael Too and Faith Chepngetich were crowned winners of the two lap race in 1:49.0 and 2:03.9.

World 2000m Youth Champion Conseslus Kipruto was outstanding in the men’s 3000m steeplechase which he won in 8:26.0. The teenager beat Jairus Kipchoge( 8:26.4) and Abel Mutai (8:31.4) to second and third respectively.
