Following his dismal performance at the Ostrava Golden Spike a fortnight ago, reigning Commonwealth Games 800m champion Wycliffe Kinyamal is eyeing good results in Friday’s Doha Diamond League.

The athlete, who trains at Global Sports Communication in Kaptagat, said he is mentally and physically fit to face his rivals again ahead of next year’s olympic Games.

“Right now, I am physically and mentally fit for the challenge and ready to rumble,” said Kinyamal, who dominated the 2019 Diamond League season. He said his preparations have gone well ahead of the race. “I know I will post good results on Friday,” he added.

 “Am just waiting that day when we will take on the track in such of my maiden title,” he added.
