The Olympics are often an exciting time in Kenya. That we have some of the finest athletes on the planet is not contention. The Tokyo 2020 Olympics was another time to showcase our world class talent.
Watching the Greatest of All Time, Eliud Kipchoge, dominate his race was a thing of beauty. A moment of pride.
What stood out for me however, was the undeniable resilience of Faith Chepngetich Kipyegon. The still shot of her win reveals a pregnancy scar on her stomach. She gave birth not too long ago and put on 8kgs as a result.
I can only imagine the pressure she must have been in to feed her baby, heal and get in shape in time for the Olympics. The strength of women is too underrated!
