In what look like former Africa record holder against the current holder at the fourth meet of the Grand Prix series in Germiston on Wednesday night between Kenyan sprinter Ferdinand Omanyala and local hero Akani Simbine. But Kenya Omanyala had the upper hand after beaten Simbine to win in 9.98s to Simbine 10.11s.
