Lenskiy, Presiado capture sprint doubles at nationals

Olga Lenskiy and Imri Presiado completed the sprint doubles at the Israel athletics championships at Hadar Yosef Stadium in Tel Aviv on Thursday, adding the 200-meter title to the 100m gold medal they won a day earlier.

Lenskiy missed last year’s championships due to a drugs ban, but proved she is still the fastest woman in Israel by regaining both titles, clocking a time of 23.45 seconds in the 200m final on Thursday.

Lenskiy was well short of registering the time (23.20) that will see her qualify for next month’s World Championships in Beijing, but still has a month to do so.
