ROBINSON KUNDA, Lusaka
ZAMBIAN sprinter Sydney Siame on Friday night finished fourth in the 100 metres final at the Meeting Madrid Athletics Championship.

Siame, a Zambia Police officer, managed 10:22 seconds.
Yunier Perez of Cuba won the race after clocking an impressive 10:09 seconds while Zhenye Xie of China settled for a second place with 10:11seconds.
Jamaica’s Ryan Shields was third with 10:20 seconds while David Lima of Portugal was fifth with 10:25 seconds.
Brandon Carnes of the United States of America was in a distant sixth with 10:26 seconds.
In the heats, Siame put up a spirited performance and finished third on 10:06 seconds to progress to the final.
In April this year, Siame timed 9:88 seconds, which was one of the best in the world.
However, the International Association for Athletics Federation have doubted the timing, which Siame posted during the All-Comers Meet at National Heroes Stadium in Lusaka.
Siame is in Europe preparing for next month’s World Championships set for London.
