The Malawian Athlete Asimenye Simwaka has cleared to attend the 2024 Olympic Games qualifier in Cameroon.

The Simwaka’s trip was first doubtful due to 21days mourning period declared by President Lazarus Chakwera in honor of the late Vice President Saulos Klaus Chilima and eight others.

Following the declaration, the Malawi National Council of sports suspended all sporting events until further notice.

According to MNCS Chief Executive Officer Henry Kamata, Simwaka’s issue is exceptional and that she would be allowed to travel to Cameroon to attend the championship.

“we have considered other factors because it is an international tournament and not a local one and in the best interest of her career we must allow her to attend the tournament and the country’s prospects at the major event, it is unlike the local ones which we, as a nation can manage from within,” Kamata said

However, recently, Simwaka set a new national record of 11.56 seconds beating her previous feat of 11.68 in 100m. In 200m, she clocked 23.16 to beat her previous record by 12 milliseconds
