Deborah Acheampong ranked third-fastest African woman in 100m

Acheampong ran her personal best (PB) in the women's 100m final 1 of the West Texas Jo Meaker Classic and Multi

Ghanaian sprinter Deborah Acheampong is currently ranked the third fastest woman in 100m on the African continent following her impressive run of 11.29 seconds in the Women’s 100m Final 1 of the West Texas Jo Meaker Classic & Multi, which was held at the West Texas A&M University Track & Soccer Complex in Texas, United States of America (USA) from 4–5 April.

Acheampong’s impressive run sees her just behind the Nigerian duo of Olayinka Olajide (11.19 seconds) and Tima Seikeseye Godbless (11.24 seconds), who are currently the fastest and second-fastest women’s 100m sprinters on the continent. On the global stage, the Ghanaian sprint star’s time of 11.29 seconds puts her joint 29th along with Australia’s Bree Masters.

The run, Acheampong’s personal best in 100m, saw her take first place in the Women’s 100m Final 1, ahead of the Jamaican duo of Grizell Scarlett and Kamaria Knight, who finished in second and third, respectively. This is an improvement from her appearance at the 96th Clyde Littlefield Texas Relays, which saw her finish in 13th place in the Women’s 100m Timed Final, running a time of 11.66 seconds.

Below are the Top 10 fastest African women in 100m:
