After the race, Leni shared on her Instagram page; “Happy with my progress here in Geneva. A season’s best of 51.81 – still chasing the Olympic standard, getting closer.

She added; “I will keep giving it everything as I go for my dreams. Thanks for having me at your amazing meeting @atleticageneve.”

For Shida to qualify for the Tokyo Olympics, she will have to summon a better performance than that of the 400m Silver Medal (51.64) at the 2019 World University Games held in Naples, Italy.
