The young athlete finished second in the controversial World Athletics (20 Years) 10,000m walk this Saturday, 21 August in Nairobi, Kenya. Cap!
Never before had he seen him side by side with the best athletes from five continents. Perhaps this justifies the caution with which he took this test on the track to Narobi.
