Omanyala has had a fantastic season following his outstanding performance at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, which earned him a second-place result on home soil.
The 25-year-old finished second behind American Trayvon Bromell, who won the race, with veteran Justin Gatlin having to settle for third.
Omanyala won the race with a time of 9.77 seconds, cementing his place in history. He broke Kenya's 100m national marks for the fifth time, as well as the African record formerly held by South Africa's Akani Simbine, with a thunderous finish. Plus, there's more. It has earned him a spot on the all-time men's 100m list.
Here is the all-time 100m list:
1. Usain Bolt (9.58)
2. Tyson Gay (9.69)
3. Yohan Blake (9.69)
4. Asafa Powell (9.72)
5. Justin Gatlin (9.74)
6. Trayvon Bromell (9.76)
7. Christian Coleman (9.76)
8. Ferdinand Omanyala (9.77)
Omanyala's time of 9.77s puts him in eighth place in the world, while Bromell's time of 9.76s puts him in sixth place. blistering-finish-kip keino classic.
