Her name is Sabina Chebichi. She was born in May 1959 from a humble background in TransNzoia county, Western Kenya. Sabina will always be remembered in the books of history as the first female athlete in Kenya to win a medal at Commonwealth games in Newzealand, 1974. She won a bronze medal when she was only a 14 year old young girl with big dreams
The most interesting thing is that despite Chebichi lacking necessary athletics kits,she didn't give up on her dream. She went in the race with what she could afford. She ran barefoot while wearing a petticoat commonly known as a Kamisi. That was truly outstanding to her and that is why she will always be remembered as a legend. Congratulations to her. That is the true strength and courage every Kenyan deserves to have.The zeal and passion to go for it regardless of the underlying circumstances.
