Track Beauty of the Week: Amina Ferguen
January 29, 2012Posted by on
Amina Ferguen is this week’s track beauty!
The German-Algerian athlete is an up and coming international-level sprint hurdler. Although based in Germany, Ferguen competes for Algeria. In the last couple of years, Ferguen has risen steadily in terms of performance, winning regional medals in the 100m hurdles.
At the 2010 African Championships, Ferguen stopped the clock at 13.87s to grab third place. A year later, the sprint hurdler placed a narrow fourth at the 2011 All-Africa Games, but clocked a significantly better time of 13.58s. She fared much better at the Pan-Arab Games held a few months later with her silver medal performance.
Ferguen is bristling with potential. She had a banner year in 2011, setting personal bests in both the 60m hurdles (8.49s) and the 100m hurdles (13.38sw). She also set her legal 100m hurdles personal best in 2011, clocking 13.46s behind Daegu World Championships veteran, Cindy Roleder. According to All-Athletics.com, Ferguen was ranked 89th in the 100m hurdles in 2011 – a respectable position for a breakout year that’s sure to come.
