Kenya's world record sprinter Ferdinand Omanyala has landed another lucrative deal after gaining fame through his unmatched performance in the short races field.
According to one of the local stations, the sprinter would be joining the service as part of the General Service Unit's (GSU) elite Recce Squad under the National Police Service.
A statement by the National Police Service indicated that the 25-year-old would take up a new role that will see him represent the National Police Service and the country in future track events but will not join until January.
I wish you well in the service for your country," part of the IG Mutyambai stated.
Omanyala on his side expressed gratitude to the NPS and the government for supporting talent. In addition, he promised to repay this kindness with success in the track events.
"It is an honor to serve the National Police Service and I promise to give my best as an athlete. I also understand that there is life after sprinting," he stated.
