BEIJING, May 24 (Xinhua) -- Chinese sprinter Ge Manqi set a personal best time in the 200m event of 22.69s on Sunday, representing the fastest time a Chinese female athlete has run since 1998.

In a competition organized by the Chinese Athletics Association in the country's southeastern city of Fuzhou, Ge lowered her personal best from 23.12s, which she set in 2017.
