Omanyala Visa Delays


Ferdinand Omanyala who is the second-fastest man this year with a record of 9.85 after American Fred Kerley with a record of 9.83 is among the few members in Team Kenya experiencing visa delays and thus yet to travel to the United States for the Word Athletics Champions, Oregon 2022.

Omanyala, Africa’s fastest man and a medal hopeful for Kenya at the worlds, shared his disappointment with just two days until the start of the global showpiece.

The African champion is among the athletes who will compete on the opening day of the championship in the men’s 100m heats with finals set for Saturday.

Kenya is sending a contingent of 46 athletes to the event with the team flagged off yesterday by President Uhuru Kenyatta.
