AthleteÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s dramatic comeback
The 28-year-old long distance runner from Harare covered the 10km in 29 minutes and 27 seconds. This enabled him finish runner up behind South Africa Tshamano Setone.
“What is most important for me is that I completed the race in fine form. I was not sure of myself going into this race as I am returning to competition for the first time this year,” says Mujaji.
“I have been nursing a tendon injury since February. It has been a long and at times agonising wait. As an athlete it is difficult watching others compete and yet you cannot because of an injury. I am glad that is all over now,” Mujaji admits.
With his spirits up once again, Mujaji is optimistic he will be in fine form when the Nedbank Road Running Series resumes next year.
“I hope that I will be fully fit to compete in the series next year. I need to fully regain competition fitness in the 10km races before I venture elsewhere,” Mujaji revealed.
