    Kabla sijasahau, naomba nitumie nafasi hii kutoa pongezi za dhati kwa watani wetu wa jadi Kenya kwa kujizolea medali nyingi za olimpiki kuliko nchi yoyote ya kiafrika. Hongera sana kwa mafanikio hayo. Kenya imekuwa mstali wa mbele kwa muda mrefu sana katika riadha, namkumbuka Kip-Choge Keino wa miaka hiyo ya sitini.

    Jelimo claims landmark 800m gold​


    [​IMG]

    Pamela Jelimo powered to a brilliant 800m victory to become the first Kenyan woman to win an Olympic title.

    The 18-year-old, who only began running the event in April, set a devastating pace to win in one minute 54.87 seconds at the Bird's Nest stadium in Beijing.

    Janeth Jepkosgei could not match her compatriot and took silver ahead of Morocco's Hasna Benhassi.

    Veteran Maria Mutola, who was competing in her sixth Olympic Games, finished out of the medals in sixth.

    Kipruto claims steeplechase gold​


    [​IMG]

    Kenyan middle distance runner Brimin Kiprop Kipruto added Olympic gold to his world championship title by winning the men's 3000m steeplechase.

    The 23-year-old held off a late charge from Mahiedine Mekhissi-Benabbad of win in eight minutes 10.34 seconds.

    Mekhissi-Benabbad took silver for France with Kenyan Richard Kipkemboi Mateelong claiming bronze.

    Kipruto, runner-up at Athens 2004, ensured the title has gone to a Kenyan at every Games since 1980.

    The last non-Kenyan to win the event was Poland's Bronislaw Malinowski, who took gold at the 1980 Moscow Games, which the Kenyans boycotted.

    Kipruto's time was comfortably below Qatari Saif Saeed Shaheen's world record of seven minutes 53.63 seconds, with Mekhissi-Benabbad coming through in 8:10.49 and Mateelong a further 0.12secs adrift.

    Defending Olympic champion Ezekiel Kemboi, also of Kenya, finished in seventh spot, more than five seconds off the pace.

    Kemboi, also a silver medallist in the last three world championships, set the early pace alongside 19-year-old Ugandan Benjamin Kiplagat.

    Sweden's Somali-born Mustafa Mohamed took up the reins but with four-and-a-half laps to go, American Anthony Famiglietti upped the pace of a slow race.

    Famiglietti faded badly after that as Mohamed, Kemboi and Mekhissi-Benabbad moved to the fore.

    The last lap saw Kipruto burst through with team-mate Mateelong, the world bronze medallist from Osaka 2007, and Mekhissi-Benabbad.

    Kipruto held off the Frenchman in the final sprint for the line.

    Nawapongeza sana wakenya kwa kufanya vizuri sana kwenye mashindano ya olimpics. Tanzania tunaweza kufanya maajabu kwenye mashindano kama haya iwapo tutawekeza vya kutosha hasa hasa kwenye MASUMBWI kwani ndiko tunakoonekana kufanya vizuri zaidi ya michezo mingine yote.

    Langat, Bungei win Olympic gold medals

    Nancy Langat won the gold medal in the women’s 1500 metres at the Bird’s Nest stadium on Saturday in a time of four minute 00.23 seconds.

    Wilfred Bungei also won the men's Olympic 800 meters gold medal with a dominant front-running performance on Saturday.

    Ismail Ahmed Ismail of Sudan took silver and world champion Alfred Kirwa Yego, claimed the bronze.

    And in the men's 5,000m final, Kenya was placed second and third position as Ethiopia's Bekele bagged the gold medal in 12 minutes 57.82 seconds.

    Eliud Kipchoge and Edwin Soi won silver and bronze medals respectively.

    In the 800m, Bungei hit the front soon after the bell and drove clear to win in one minute, 44.65 seconds, giving Kenya their first victory in the event since 1992.

    And as Langat took the women's title, Ukraine took silver and bronze medal positions through Iryna Lishchynska and Nataliya Tobias.

    Maryam Jamal of Bahrain led until she was overtaken by Langat with 250 metres remaining.

    Jamal, the current world champion, faded badly and missed out on a medal position, ending up in fifth place.

    The men's 800m race was wide open after defending champion Yuriy Borzakovskiy of Russia, 2004 silver medalist Mbulaeni Mulaudzi and fancied Sudanese teenager Abubaker Kaki failed to reach the final.

    Marathon gold for Kenya's Wanjiru

    [​IMG]

    Wanjiru set a phenomenal pace from the first 100m


    Sammy Wanjiru won Kenya's first ever gold in the men's marathon, breaking the Olympic record despite the soaring heat in Beijing.

    Wanjiru, who was among the leading pack which set the fast early pace, pulled away in the final kilometres to win in 2 hours six minutes and 32 seconds.

    Morocco's Jaouad Gharib won silver, trailing by 84 seconds, while Ethiopian Tsegay Kebede took bronze.

    Dan Robinson, Britain's only representative, finished in 24th place.

    Wanjiru, 21, and compatriot Martin Lel set a punishing pace in the first five kilometres which reduced the leading pack to eight, with Spain's Cheme Martinez the only non-African.

    The leading pack was then whittled down to five as Wanjiru pushed the pace up a notch at the 15km mark, and 20km later just Wanjiru, Gharib and Ethiopia's Deriba Merga could sustain the phenomenal tempo.

    Wanjiru always looked the stronger of the trio and the Kenyan, who made his marathon debut last year, made a final spurt to win by a comfortable margin.

    Gharib and Merga were left to fight it out for silver and bronze, but the latter fell away in the last two km to finish fourth.

    These guys have done kenyans proud. Over a bilion people heard the national anthem of kenya being played as samuel recieved his marathon gold medal during the closing ceremony. After such a bad start to the year, this feels good.
