February 15, 2017 By Sahr Morris Jnr

British born Sierra Leonean sprinter, Mutara Shabazz Sheriff, over the weekend concluded his 2017 Indoor Track campaign on a high note with a Personal best time of 22.07 seconds in the 200 meters, which is a country best for the year.

Sheriff looks to capitalise on his significant improvement, as he looks forward to a great outdoor season which will be capped by a potential representation of Sierra Leone at the IAAF World Outdoor Championships in London in August.

The British born Sierra Leonean sprinter recently committed to compete for Sierra Leone at International level and also competed at the SEAA Championships (South of England Athletics Association) on a good footing.

He competed in his first Indoor meet of 2017, setting a new leading time of 6.87 seconds.

 He then followed that up on Sunday, January 15th with a solid performance in the 200 meters, where he clocked the race in 22.59 seconds, finishing third.
