Kenya’s sprint sensation Ferdinand Omanyala made his maiden Diamond League appearance at the Brussels meet finishing fourth on Friday night.

The national record holder clocked 10.02 seconds to finish behind three Americans; Kerley Fred, Bromell Trayvon and Norman Michael the 100M race.

“Lining up at this event was such a divine opportunity and blessing. Stay learning, stay working hard, give it your all. It only gets better,” said Omanyala.
