Daryll Neita capped a fantastic athletics season which saw her win bronze at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics last month, with a fantastic performance at the ISTAF (International Stadion-Fest) in Berlin, winning the Women’s 100m final.
Daryll was part of the quartet that won bronze in Tokyo, having ran the final leg of the Women’s 4x100m final finishing behind Jamaica and USA.
The ISTAF Championship would once again highlight the progression of Daryll Neita and demonstrate how far she has come in a season of improvements for the former Oaklands College and Oaklands Wolves Athletics Academy alumna.
the ISTAF, which celebrates the culmination of the athletics season was in party-mode, having welcomed the world’s elite for its centenary celebrations, having first been established in 1921.
Speaking on social media, Daryll Neita said:
Berlin was amazing, it is such a special place to close the 2021 season, it’s been a magical year.
Daryll, who finished eighth in the Women’s 100m final at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games with a 11.12 second run, bettered her performance in Berlin with an impressive 11.04 sprint to take victory, and despite finishing eighth in Tokyo, her time in Japan would have placed her third in Berlin, highlighting the progression and competitiveness of the Olympic field.
Daryll’s impressive season reaffirms her place in the Oaklands Wolves Hall of Fame and will inspire this year’s cohort of aspiring female sprinters within the Oaklands Wolves Athletics Academy.
