In athletics, precisely in the men's 100m, round one, heat number four, Dylan Sicobo finished fourth in 10.74 seconds, while in heat number six, Denzel Adam finished sixth overall in 10.70 seconds.

Seychelles’ other sprinter Sharry did not start his heat.

Fresh from the World Athletics Championships 2022 at the Hayward Field in Eugene, Oregon, United States, Ned Azemia was also supposed to be in action yesterday in the heat number three of the men's 400m hurdles.

In weightlifting, Romentha Larue was also featured on the list for the women's 87kg category.
