Ferdinand Omanyala Eyes three-peat In African Athletics Championships In Mauritius

Ferdinand Omanyala has revealed he is eyeing triple gold in 100m and 200m as well as the 4x100m relay at the African Athletics Championships in Mauritius this June.

Ferdinand Omanyala Secures Three National Titles at Athletics Kenya Championships.

The African 100m record holder shared his ambitions after clinching three national titles in the just concluded Athletics Kenya Championships.

Omanyala clocked 10.03secs to win the 100m final at Kasarani Stadium.

The sprinter clinched his second gold, winning 200m in 20.43 to book his place at the African championship.

Dan Kaviasi was second with a time of 20.90, qualifying for the 200m race in African championship in Mauritius as well.

Commenting on the race, Omanyala said,

“It was a bit hard for the 200m because when we went to the blocks it was very wet. Managing such a race is difficult but all in all I believe those were good times we posted.”

Speaking on the upcoming Championship, the sprinter shared his ambition;

“Yeah I am going for all three at the African championships.

I feel great and I feel in good shape and I believe it is possible.

The national champions were really great, especially competing after two years since we were last here in 2019. I really enjoyed myself out here,” said Omanyala.

Last week Omanyala and his Kenya Police team dazzled the crowd with an emphatic performance to win the men’s 4x100m relay.

With the quartet win, a Kenyan relay team will be represented in the African championship.
