Omanyala breaks another record for team Kenya at the Tokyo Olympics

Kenyan sprinter Ferdinand Omanyala came third in the semi finals of the 100 meters race in Japan. The Kenyan secured a personal best of 10.00 seconds, this is also the national record for the speed track. He previously had clocked 10.01 seconds to qualify for the semi finals.

It is interesting since Omanyala came before world class performers like Yohan Blake from Jamaica. Despite this performance he leaves the tournament as the national hero by being the first Kenyan to grace such a podium. Kenyans have taken to Twitter to congratulate the national hero who flew the Kenyan flag high.

Team Kenya has been faced with many challenges in Japan. Two players who are sprinters have been disqualified including Mark Otieno who failed a drug test, the rugby men's and women's team had an early exit together with the ladies volleyball team.

We are wishing team Kenya the best in the Olympics. Which other Kenyan do you think will be breaking records?
