Gambia’s track queen Gina Bass and new King of the tracks, Ebrima Camara will be flying The Gambian colors at the World Athletics Championship to be held in Oregon, USA.

Gina will participate in the 100m after winning the gold medal in Mauritius with a timing of 11.06 seconds. Her new time stands as the national record for The Gambia but also her personal best. This will be Gina’s second appearance at the Games, following her Doha 2019 exploits in which she and finished 6th in the 200m finals. With this experience and her recent performance at the African Championship, it is hoped that she will do well at the Oregon.
