Just In, Another Kenyan Athlete Reportedly Dies In An Unclear Circumstance In Their Village Home.

Couple of days ago, a Kenyan Olympic athlete Gilbert died under an unclear circumstance and many people have been mourning his death up to today. Gilbert was only 23 years old and he died after a short illness. Apparently, another Kenyan athlete has been pronounced dead this evening. Yvonne Jelagat Morwa used to train at Iten athletics camp and the young girl often attended training since she wanted to quench her thirst of being a medalist in Kenya. Yvonne often wanted to participate in international marathon races but her young age could not allow. She never gave up and her friends say that Yvonne would often attend training even when she's alone. It has been reported that Yvonne missed training for about two days. Her friends thought that maybe she's sick and will return back for training. Today evening, they were shocked to hear that Yvonne had just passed away few minutes ago. The last time when she was in Iten field that's two days ago, Yvonne actively trained before taking several photos with colleagues. This is so sad indeed. Rest In Peace Yvonne.
