Meanwhile Museveni has rewarded Uganda's first marathon Gold medalist Kiprotich with 6.7m, promoted the prison warder nine ranks higher and undertaken to build his parents a three-bedroomed house
The leadership of Team Kenya did not disappoint. They failed big time and went so low and petty so much so that they hoarded training kits even running shoes. Not to mention NOCK officials shipping their secretaries to London to earn £300 a day per diem.
But thank God we had captain Rudisha to thank for saving Kenya's face. Rudisha's stride and Kemboi's dance to victory and history was a sight to behold. Congratulations to both Rudisha (and Kemboi) for leading from the front and by example.
Heads likes that of Isaiah Kiplagat must roll. The guy has been head of Athletic Kenya since inception. Infact all the athletes competing at London olympics were born when he was the chair of AAK. Keino too may be a polished gentleman but time is up for NOCK to have a real knock on the head.
Athletic Kenya needs fresh blood headed by a new generation of the Tergats. Until that is done we are facing Waterloo in Rio in four years time.
