Heartbreak for Sanford at national championships

Donald Sanford came tantalizingly close to booking his place at next month’s World Championships in Beijing on Wednesday, missing out on the qualifying time in the 400- meter race by two hundredths of a second at the Israel athletics championships in Hadar Yosef Stadium in Tel Aviv.

Sanford won the national title in a time of 45.52 seconds and doesn’t have long to secure his berth at the World Championships, which get underway in the Chinese capital on August 22.

“I felt good, but was missing that little bit,” said Sanford, who took a bronze medal at the European Athletics Championships last year. “I have races coming up in Belgium and Russia and I will not stop until I set the criteria.”
