Nghipandulwa stays on course in Athletics

Windhoek-Namibian 800m champion Daniel Nghipandulwa says he still has what it takes to continue taking part in athletics.
Over time, Daniel Nghipandulwa has proven that age is nothing but a number, as he keeps producing the goods in the 800m track event.
Nghipandulwa, who first appeared on the local athletics scene in 2005, has never looked back, and continues to make his presence felt at local, regional and International events.
His record of 1 minute, 46.62 seconds in Durban in 2010 is still standing and although there are a few local athletes who are coming close to breaking that record - none has done so yet.
Nghipandulwa said the only way one can stay on top as an athlete is to keep training and pushing oneself until results are seen.
At last weekend's Senior National Championships in Windhoek, Nghipandulwa showed that he is still young and raring to go for more years by winning the 800m final in a time of 1 minute, 51.89 seconds to retain his national status over the distance.
" Myself in 800metres this is my thirteenth years unbeaten. Since I started in 2005 and until today. But I'm still young I'll turn 30 in June and I think I'm still having 10 years to come" Nghipandulwa said.
Nghipandulwa - funds permitted - is heading to his regional hunting ground in Gaborone, Botswana for an International Athletics Meeting this coming Saturday.
