It was a well accomplished feat since Kcaysha is at the bottom of the age group 10yrs, so in order to even make it to the finals was great when taking into consideration some of these athletes have more financial support, equipment and supplies in comparison.
Kcaysha also ran in the 200m in 28.04 and in the 800m clocked 2:36.02 which was not good enough to get her on the podium and into the finals.
