Kenya yesterday ended the Senior Africa Atheletics Championships in style by taking up the team title and a total of 25 medals. Kenya ended the championships with 10 gold medals, 7 silver medals and 8 eight bronze medals. What more we won medals in events we rarely win in like the 400 m hurdles and javelin.
Nyayo national Stadium was packed full to capacity and even the organizers were caught unawares as the had not expected such a large turn out. I do agree they should have made provision for big screens outside the stadium, but all in all it was a great moment for Kenya.
Counting it was a day with 2 big yes and no referendum rallies going on it was defining that quite a large number of people decided to cheer the Kenyan team on to victory. Its quite amazing what we can achieve when we keep politics on the back burner and yesterday was an example of that.
I am proud to be Kenyan and im proud of the Kenyan team for doing us proud!!!
