What you need to know:

  • Omanyala has after all done enough to earn his rightful place in the Kenyan team for the rescheduled 2021 Olympic Games that will be held in July-August this year
  • The flying Omanyala, 25, not only breached the Olympic qualifying time of 10.05 seconds but did it in sensational fashion in Lagos last Tuesday
  • AK in their effort to hit drug cheats hard passed a resolution never to allow anybody found guilty of a doping offense to represent Kenya in competition

When a genuine world-class sprinter emerges in Kenya, a once in a blue moon occurrence, he or she should be given all the support necessary to excel to the highest level.
