Gambia’s track queen, Gina Bass is through to the 200m semi-finals at the ongoing World Athletics Championship in Oregon, USA. Gina finished fourth with a timing of 22.78, earning a place in the best 16 in the 200m at the championship. The semi-finals will take place on Wednesday at 12:05am Gambian time.
