Kenya's Omanyala beats all Odds to Record New World's Record at Kip Keino Classic Men's 100m Race

Months after Kenya's and Africa's record breaking sprinter Ferdinand Omanyala got knocked out of the World Indoor Championship held in Serbia at the semis, the fastest man has today set a new world record in the men's 100m Kip Keino Classic Race after emerging the best.

The home hero Omanyala posted such a remarkable record within a duration of 9.87 seconds beating some other world's best sprinters including Fred Keyley who came the runner up this Saturday evening at Kasarani Sports centre.

The men's 100m had suffered an exit of the highly rated Olympic Champions Lamont Marcell who withdrew from the competition at the eleventh hour citing reasons of intestinal problems.

Last defeat at Serbia saw Omanyala have a bad start, one primary reason that most followers of the Kenyan sprinter cited to be the reason for his defeat. However, Mr Omanyala today showcased the best start which he maintained till the finishing mark to manage beating the American Fred Kerley whom he denied gold in Tokyo last summer. What a scorching performance at Kasarani by Omanyala!
