Senegalese 100-meter swimmer, Animable Steven Killian has showered praises on Ghana's swimmer, Abeiku Jackson for setting a new time record in the Men’s 100 LC metres yesterday.
Abeiku recorded 22. 92 seconds to break the existing mark of 23. 04 seconds, and thus becomes the holder of the new record in the African Zone 2 Men’s 100 LC metres butterfly.
Coming second after the reigning champion, Killian congratulated Abeiku for booking a qualification to the Olympics while he hoped to qualify during the South Africa Swimming Championship in April.
"He is my friend and I’m happy for him at the stage he is right now. He helps me to know where I am right now and I know he is getting stronger in the division and I know he could have done better than his new time."
"I have one month to train for South Africa and I'm not doubting my capabilities and I have told you that I will be coming for him because i know that with good preparations, I can't do it," he added.
Meanwhile, team Senegal finished the entire championship with 49 medals.
