These have redefined women’s potential, making Kenya to become accustomed to women runners, many of them who are mothers. Indeed these are beacons of hope to millions of women. We have seen them grabbing newspapers headline due to their potential in athletics.
Quick focus on sports women back in 1984, the first Olympic finalist Ruth Waithera who won the 400m, Sally Barsosio in 10,000m race in 1997 and the first woman to bring to Kenya’s first gold medal, Catharine Dereba in 2003 won Marathon gold, Susan Sirma who won bronze in 3000m race in Tokyo Japan, Hellen Chepnge’no the first woman to win cross country title, others like Vivian Cheruyot, Viola Kibiwot, Sylvia Chebiwott Kibet, Jeruto Kiptet among many have made us proud. Bravo women athletees and other women who build Kenya’s economy all around years to the heights, for making us proud!
