World Athletics President Sebastian Coe saluted Kenya’s contribution to athletics as Athletics Kenya celebrates its 70th anniversary in 2020.
According to the Daily Nation, Coe said: “I’m hard-pressed – certainly in my events, endurance events – to think of a country that has contributed more to those events.”
Coe continued: “From the middle 1960s, Amos Biwott was your first Olympic medallist on the cinder tracks, and then there’s the person I regard as the father of endurance in Kip Keino. And of course, the women that have made extraordinary contributions, like Tegla Loroupe, not just on the field of play but with the refugee teams as well… Everywhere I look in my sport, I have been inspired by what Kenya has achieved.”
