'This Is How Success Feels'- Omanyala Reacts After He Decorated Newspapers' Headlines

After an impressive 10.02 seconds in the 100 metre race yesterday, Ferdinand Omanyala has suddenly shot to the limelight in Kenya. The event saw the 25 year old qualify for the Tokyo Olympics alongside his friend Mark Otieno who clocked 10.05 seconds.

Today, the Nairobi based sprinter was the one in the sports headlines for all the leading newspapers in Kenya. The Standard newspaper allocated both the front and back page for the event's images while the Nation and Star publication featured the story with the former stating 'Omanyala had no respect for speed limits'.

On his Facebook account, a proud Omanyala who had worked years to achieve the qualification was clearly elated as he captioned: 'Unbelievable! This is how success feels'.

Before the qualification, Omanyala had to endure pain and frustrations and was even found guilty of doping in 2017. He was banned from athletics for over one year but resumed to pursue his track goals. His qualification means Kenyans will have their eyes focused on both the long and short races come next year.
