Another wonderful achievement for the Israeli sprinter who finished the semi-final with a result of 20.34 seconds • The 18-year-old Israeli finished in one of the fastest times



A huge achievement for the sprinter Blessing Afrifa, who this evening (Thursday) advanced to the final of the European Championships in the 200 meter run, which is being held in Munich, 50 years after the massacre of 11 members of the Israeli delegation.

The final will take place tomorrow at 22:20. 

The 18-year-old Afrifa knew that in order to automatically advance to the final, he would have to finish between the first two places, or among the 2 fastest times among all the heats, when he slowed down towards the end and was only overtaken at the finish line in a photo finish, when his time was 20.34 seconds. 

The Israeli sat on the chair, watched the rest of the allocations and crossed his fingers to see the results of the losers, when at the end, he could breathe a sigh of relief, when he was informed that he was in the grand final. 

Afrifa stunned everyone a few weeks ago, when he won the 200 meters at the Under-20 World Championship in Colombia, while setting one of the third best results in Tiva of all time for his age with 19.96 seconds, thus putting a spotlight on him, as someone who can also do it in the major continental competition.
