In an interview with tv and comedy host Dr. King'ori, Friends School Kamusinga alumni Ferdinand Omurwa Omanyala explains how 0.5 seconds cost him. Ferdinand set a record in the Olympics for being the fastest African sprinter and the first Kenyan to reach the semi-finals.
On being compared to Usain Bolt, he acknowledged that Bolt was a good sprinter. He went on to add that he would beat Usain on track if they were left on the track. On record, Usain bolt is only 0.5 seconds faster than Ferdinand.
He went on jokingly to say that it only needs him 0.5 seconds to take the 30 million cash prize for winning the gold medal. Omanyala thanks the Olympics for making him famous enough to gain endorsements and a chance to participate in any races in the world.
Omanyala urges young Kenyans to participate in various activities to discover their talent and passion. Do you think with time, Omanyala will one day bring Kenya a gold medal in the 100-meter race?
