Halutie in speaking to the media stated that her inexperience with regards to the international events played a role in that and she also stated that she would train hard to improve.

“When the race started I was able to go with them till we reach the 50 metres but since this is my first event they used some techniques to beat me.

I will definitely meet them (the other athletes) somewhere. I will also train hard and learn the techniques to come and meet them."

Hor Halutie made it to the final as one of the fastest losers with the time of 11.46 made in the semi final.

However, the 19 year old fell short of her semifinal time as she made the time 11.54 and placed 8 in the process.
