Dakar Meeting: Wind disrupted performance

The Senegalese Louis François Mendy (12''91 in the 110m hurdles) and the Gambian Gina Bass (11''02 in the 100m) achieved the best performances of the Dakar meeting, disputed on Saturday June 25 in the annex of the Abdoulaye Wade stadium of Diamniadio. But, these two times were not approved because of the too strong wind which was blowing (+4m/s). Just like the 9.93 in the 100m of the Gambian Ebrahima Camara. The limit authorized by World Athletics is 2m/s.
