After several heartbreaks, Kenya has bagged her first gold medal in the ongoing 2020 Tokyo Olympics after Emmanuel Korir won the men’s 800M race.
Pre-race favorite Ferguson Rotich, after what looked like a poor tactical approach, recovered to win Silver.

The win means Kenya has won the 800M race at the Olympics for a fourth straight time.
Earlier, Hyvin Kiyeng picked bronze for Kenya in the women’s 3000M Steeplechase in a race won by Uganda’s Peruth Chemutai.
