Brave Gina Bass Bows out in 200m Finals

By Sulayman Bah

Gina Bass yesterday wrapped her time at the World Games in Qatar with a sixth placed finish.

The Gambian outshined Bulgaria’s Lalova-Collio and Tiynia Gaither from the Bahamas to attain a 22.7 seconds.

Dina Asher-Smith of Great Britain topped the finals snatching gold on a timing of 21.88 followed by the United States Britany Brown grabbing silver at 22.22 seconds.

Bass’ trip to yesterday night’s finals hasn’t been without toiling.

After a lukewarm start to life in the 100m which ended with an exit in the semis as rival Ivorian Josee Ta Lou up staged the Gambian, Gina right the wrongs that dogged her in time to breeze into the semis of the 200m finals on Monday.

That performance was followed up with another cracker of some sort when she mounted the podium to clock 22:60 seconds to squeeze into a third-place finish in the semis.
