Beatrice Masilingi Makes Winning Return to The Track

by | Jul 6, 2022

Namibian sprint sensation Beatrice Masilingi bounced back to winning ways in Switzerland after months on the sidelines with a torn hamstring and damaged tissues in her right leg.

On Sunday, 3 July, Masilingi strongly bounced back in a thrilling win in the 200m race at the Resisprint International in Switzerland.

Masilingi won the race with a seasonal best of 22.29, followed by Poland’s Anna Kiełbasińska in second (22.76), which is also a personal best.

Third place went to Germany’s Alexandra Burghardt, who clocked a PB of 23.04.

A few months ago, Masilingi was forced to limp off midway through a race during the Gaborone International Meet in Botswana after she suffered a torn hamstring, which also led to the damage of other surrounding tissues in her right leg.

The 19-year-old Namibian sprinter, who is now running and training under new coach Hennie Kriel of South Africa, had been going through a recuperation process, and this past weekend’s race was a first of many steps on her journey to full recovery.
