Kenyan sprint sensation Ferdinand Omanyala has been a topic of interest in the country and around the world for the past week after setting a new African 100m record during the just completed Kipkeino Classic world tour in Nairobi.
Omanyala claims there is more to his life than what people see on TV when he competes, despite the fact that he has gotten the majority of the attention.
As they behind every successfully man there is a woman, Omanyala has a wonderful wife by the name Laventa who has been supporting him in his career.
Laventa revealed interesting details about herself while appearing on JKLive on Citizen Tv with her husband, including the fact that she is an athlete who has been in the sport longer than her husband.
She revealed that she is a sprinter who has competed in a number of races, with her best time in the 100m dash being 12 seconds.
“I was already in the athletics before he came in. I have been in athletics since 2015… I am also a long jumper,” she revealed.
She has also worked in the medical field, serving in prestigious institutions such as the Mama Lucy Hospital in Nairobi.
She also serves as the CEO of their company, Track Ferdy, which manufactures products for the sprint sensation. She aspires to expand the company into one of international renown by collaborating with local talent.
The Omanyalas have been blessed with one child, who is currently two years old.
