Qatar's Samba wins gold at World Challenge meet in Zagreb


Doha: Qatar’s Abderrahmane Samba won the men’s 400M hurdles at the World Challenge Meeting in Zagreb, Croatia, on Tuesday.

He clocked 48.70 for the gold followed by British Virgin Islands’ Kyron McMaster (49.49) and South Africa’s LJ van Zyl (49.69).

It must have been a huge relief for the 22-year-old after failing to win a medal at the IAAF World Championships in London.

Samba had won at the Doha Diamond League in May, but finished seventh at the worlds with a time of 49.74.
