Athletics has helped a good number of Kenyans to secure lucrative jobs,not only in the police service,but also in other fields like the armed forces. Today, Ferdinand Omanyala becomes the latest Kenyan international athlete to join the likes of David Rudisha and Julius Yego after he was secured a chance by the inspector general to serve in the police service.
Omanyala started his sporting career as a rugby player before he started sprinting. He became very successful in sprinting by manging to break a number of records including the 10 seconds mark at the international Josko in Australia where he completed a 100-metres race in 9.86 seconds.
On March 2021,Omanyala rose to fame when he completed a 100-metre race in 10.01 seconds at an event that was held in Nigeria. It was the Nigeria race that helped Omanyala to secure a qualification for the 2020 Tokyo Olimpics where he also managed to reach the semi-finals.
In November 2021 Omanyala became the best African sprinter after setting a new 9.77 seconds record breaking South African Qkuni's 9.8seconds record for 100-metres.
Speaking at the event,Omanyala appreciated the Kenyan government for placing more than enough efforts in supporting talents amongst the youths. On the other hand,Mr. Mutyambai urged the star to continue exploiting his talent as he serve in the Kenya Police as well.
