Kenyans have finally had the much awaited jubilatory moment after bagging the first gold medal in the Tokyo 2020 olympics. This comes after Emmanuel Kipkirui won a gold medal in the Men's 800 M final where Ferguson Rotich won the silver in the same.
Team Kenya failed to even qualify for any medal positions in volleyball, Rugby, Taekwodo and boxing as they were ousted during the early stages of the competitions leaving athletics as the only hope for a gold medal.
However things have not gone quit as expected in the athletics as we failed to win a gold medal in races that we previously dominated.
In the 3000M steeplechase Women as Hyvin Kiyeng managed to get only a bronze medal with Uganda's Chemutai bagging the gold in the same. In the previous races Kenya has only managed to get a silver from the Women's 5000M by Hellen Obiri and a bronze by Kigen B in the 3000M steeplechase Men.
