LAUSANNE (SUI): After running a Swiss record of 11.03 in Lausanne, Mujinga Kambundji is looking to break the 11 second-barrier in the 100m. “I don’t think it was my best one from an execution standpoint. I felt I was fighting a bit too much with myself, not being relaxed enough. So I know I can do better. And I know that from what I do in my training sessions. Sub-11 is definitely on the radar,” she said. She will race in Luzern, Swiss Championships, Bellinzona and Monaco ahead of the European Championships.
RunBlogRun opines: Mujinga Kambundji has developed over the past several years. I have been fortunate to watch her race since 2013. Switzerland is veyr proud of its athletes. Setting records in front of a home crowd is even more important in a country such as Switzerland where they do not have the plethora of athletes that we see in the U.S. Mujinga is quite capable of going under 11 seconds. In all honesty, Mujinga looks quite impressive at 200 meters as well. This year has been a difficult one for Mujinga, as she changed coaching situations and dealt with coaching herself for a bit. The desire to succeed is there and she is supported by her countrymen and countrywomen. After the 11.03 NR, Mujinga joined her national relay team to run a swift 42.29 NR in the 4x100m.
