The race was held at Kasarani Sports Center where the President Uhuru Kenyatta, cheered Omanyala on as he emerged second best overall at the race.
Omanyala also broke the African 100 Meter record held by a Nigerian by around 0.10 seconds from 9.87 seconds.
This also meant that Ferdinand Omanyala's time was the seventh fastest time in the history of the 100 Meters races in the world.
