The 26-year-old who studied Bachelor of Science at the University of Nairobi rose to stardom in Lagos Nigeria where he clocked 10.01 seconds on 30th March 2021 at an athletic event dubbed the ‘Making of Champions (MOC) Grand Prix’ where he met the qualification for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.

The rugby-player-turned-sprinter warmed up hearts of Kenyans by clocking an impressive African best time of 9.77 seconds breaking the 9.85s record that had been set by Akuni Sembine from South Africa at the Kip-Keino Classics that was held at the Moi International Sports Centre, Kasarani in September of 2021.

Last year the African sensation gifted Kenya its first ever Commonwealth Games 100m gold medal in 60 years.
