Female sprinter Fikunawa reflects on her Ghana experience

HANGANENI Fikunawa, who has already made a big name in athletics following her first major international appearance at the All-Africa Games, said that the Ghana experience is one of her best moments in life.
Fikunawa represented team Namibia in the 4×400 relay, and 4x100m relay heats at the All-African Games, held from 4 March to 23 March at the University of Ghana Sports Stadium.
Although the Namibia relay team did not win a medal, her performance did not go unnoticed after she helped the team reach the semi-finals.
Her success at the Botswana Golden Grand Prix in the 100m sprints, which she won last April, remains one of her best moments in life.
This week, Confidente caught up with Fikunawa, who spoke about her experience and lessons learned from her first major international competition and how she intends to qualify for future Olympics, Commonwealth Games, and World Championships.
At 24, she is in her prime to achieve greater heights. Who knows, maybe in the next few years, Namibians will be talking about her achievements on the global stage, just like legendary sprinter Frank Fredericks, Ananias Shikongo, Johanna Benson, Christine Mboma, and Johannes Nambala, all of whom have won medals at Olympic/Paralympic Games.
