Triple Mount Cameroon Race of Hope Winner Tatah Carine has vowed to right the wrongs of the previous edition going into the 27th edition of the race scheduled for this Saturday February 19.
The 24-year old who swept three first place finish between 2018-2020 but lost to Kitan Mildred last year, settling for a second spot finish, a result she wants better this time around.
Reacting to questions from the media 48 hours before the start of the race, Carine revealed she is better prepared.
“I have prepared for it, we will see on Saturday,” the talented Athlete stated before going on to make a promise about this weekend’s event.
“I will like to tell my fans that I will not fail them this time around,” she added.
The 27th edition of the Mount Cameroon Race of Hope is the biggest sporting event in Central Africa this weekend.
The event splitted into the men and women’s category is expected to attract over 400 Athletes from over ten countries with Athletes from France, Morocco, Gabon and Kenya amongst those challenging the Cameroonians.
In the past few weeks, the tracks of the mountain have been cleared and painted to indicate the road to the summit.
Just like Carine, other Athletes are already in Buea for the race.
The launch of the Mt Cameroon Race of Hope will take place this Friday, February 18 at the Molyko Omnisport Stadium and the race proper comes up Saturday, February 19.
Though she still has much of her career ahead of her she can equal legendary Serah Etongue’s four successes at the event this year and target Yvonne Gwaya’s record seven win before her 30s.
Last year, Carine missed the chance of matching Sarah Liengu Etongue’s four consecutive wins record of 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999.
Only Ngwaya Yvonne who won the race on five occasions between 2009-2013 has a longer streak in the women’s category.
Carine, Yvonne and Mildred will be the real attraction in this year’s event.
