Kip Keino Classic: Ferdinand Omanyala Lights Up Kasarani

BY NAMULONGO PETER,NAIROBI,7TH MAY,2022-Home hero Ferdinand Omanyala posted the fastest men’s 100m in the world this year with a time of 9.85 seconds as he delivered a showstopping end to this year’s Kip Keino Classic on Saturday evening.

The men’s 100m had suffered from the star exit of Olympic champion Lamont Marcell Jacobs who withdrew from the line-up at the last minute because of intestinal problems.

That left meant there would no Olympic rematch between him and Fred Kerley, the American whom he denied gold in Tokyo last summer but Omanyala provided the defining moment with a scorching performance in Kasarani.
