Lea OBEID won Gold medal at the Arab Youth Championship in 12.40 seconds. The next day her teammate Sara Joe KORTBAWI won silver on 800 meters running the distance in 2:14.85! With her 12.22 at the Asian Championship, Lea OBEID was the first youth athlete to do the qualification standards for the World Youth Championship!
Today, Sara Joe KORTBAWI only needs 0.85 to qualify to the Worlds! If she does so, we will see two Lebanese athletes representing our country at the World Championship!
Really great achievements by our Lebanese girls, hoping that the boys will do the same!
