Placed in lane three in the finals of the Women’s 100metres, the young Athlete looked confident with so much zeal to make an impression.
At age 19, she writes her name in the history books as one of the few Ghanaian female athletes to ever make the finals of the Women’s 100metres at the Commonwealth Games.
Halutie looked very confident and composed with no sign of intimidation from her competitors, perhaps she was close to secure Ghana’s first medal at this year’s competition.
A good start she had as she took off well ahead of eventual winner Michell Lee-Ahye who was just in the lane next to the Ghanaian, Halutie was able to maintain her momentum until 50metres to the finish line when her contenders took over.
Notwithstanding, the former student of TI Ahamidiya school was able to make a respectable time clocking 11.54sec to place eighth in the event.
The current National Champion showed great potential despite missing out on a medal.
Michell Lee-Ahye of Trinidad &Tobago placed first with a time of 11.14sec with Jamaican duo Christania Williams and Gayon Evans finishing in second and third respectively.
