When Muchene heard that Kenya was fielding a javelin thrower in the Olympics, it became a bit of a joke here. But Julius Yego could just have the last laugh as he qualified for the Javelin finals, finishing 9th with a throw of 81.81m...of course a new national record.
Yego was forced to use YouTube as part of his training seeing that Kenya had no clue what a Javelin was. He did however got to train some more in Finland before the Olympics and that he is in the finals is an amazing achievement.
The 23yr old policeman was the smallest in the field, but he threw a might final throw in the qualifying heat to make it to the last 12. The final is this weekend, and we'll be supporting you Mr Yego.
