Sports In Kenya

Almost everyone will tell you Kenya is famous for some things:
long distance athletics, beaches and wildlife safaris.

It is over 50 years since the beginnings of organized athletics in Kenya, which was
formerly launched as a national activity by Arthur Evans
when he initiated the Kenya Amateur Athletics Association (KAAA) .

Kenya is famously known for gold-medal wins in track events worldwide.
The first-ever, gold medal in this event was won
by Wilson Kiprugut Chuma in the 1964 Olympics in Rome.

He won a bronze in the 800 meter race as well.
The first gold medal for the 10,000 meters track event was won in 1968
in the Mexico Olympics by the Kenyan Naphatali Temu.

Kenya is proud to have continued with a steady trickle of gold and other
medals in athletics, in events all over the world.

This together with the famous wildlife Safari has put Kenya on the world map of fame.
The first woman to win a medal in athletics
was Susan Sirma;
she won a bronze medal in the 1500 meters event.

Today Kenya has won more medals in the Olympics and in
other world championship events than any other country in Africa.
