Sports News!! You have to see this!!


100m   10.74    Kingston (JAM)   14.02.2015  AMAZING!!!

Unbelievable! shouts the commentator. Little known Namibian sprinter Jesse Urikhob has just beaten Jamaican superstars Usain Bolt and Yohan Blake in the 200 metres.

To many this might sound like a fantasy but to those  who knows him, knows that this can be a reality if the young Jesse Urikhob continues on his current improvement in the 100m and 200m sprints. Jesse is at the front of a mini renaissance in Namibian sprinting alongside the likes of Hitjiverue Kaanjuka and Dantago Gurirab.

He brought hope to many fans that Namibia can finally emulate the Olympic heroics of the legendary Frank Fredericks. Although the young man from Otjiwarongo, whos immediate ambition it is to qualify for the Olympics, is yet to make the cut for the prestigious global sports event, his steady rise to prominence is encouraging. Jesse has consistently worked improving his personal best time and has succeeded in doing just so at the recently held All Africa Games in Mozambique.

He improved his time in the 100m and can now boast being able to run the event in just 10.1 seconds. Jesse hopes to similarly improve in the 200m, which he describes as his favorite event.

Fun Run ...

Otjiwarongo Secondary School kicked their athletic season off with the annual Fun run on Friday, 16 January. The morning were enjoyed by teachers as well as the learners. The SRC spoiled us with a wide variety of food and drinks on the "Snoepie" menu.
