The fastest man in Africa, Ferdinand Omanyala, was facing a stressful race against time as he awaited a US visa to attend the World Athletics Championships.

“Sad that I haven’t travelled to Oregon yet and 100m is in 2 days. Visa delays!!” he posted on Instagram

Omanyala established the African 100m record of 9:77 in September of last year. He is scheduled to compete in Friday’s heats at the world championships in Eugene, Oregon.

This season, he ranks behind Americans Trayvon Bromell and Fred Kerley as the third fastest guy in the world.

Omanyala is also scheduled to participate in the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, England, which start on July 28 and end on August 8.
