Gold Rush for Kenya - CAA African Athletics Championships

Today Kenya's best came out on to the track to emphatically place Kenya at the top of the medal standings in the ongoing CAA African Athletics Championships.

David Rudisha led Kirwa and Kivuva to complete a one, two, three medal haul in the men's 800 M.

Shortly after Nancy Jebet Lagat stamped her dominance on the womens 1500 m completely obliterating her opposition.

Also as expected Kenya maintained their monopoly of the Men's 3000 steeplechase with Matelong coming in first and Ezekiel Kemboi second.

We are all waiting to see the elegant Linet Masai take on her perennial rival the fantastic Tirunesh Dibaba in the womens 10,000 m finals.

To cap it all up everyone is looking to watch our very own "Eldoret Express" the one and only Janeth Jepkosgei do her thing in the 800M womens race. Although it would have been more exciting to see Janeth take on Caster Semenya - Africa Champion or world record holder - Pamela Jelimo ... it will still be great to see the wonderful Janeth run on home soil - a treat Kenyans have looked forward to ever since she dethroned "the Maputo express" Maria Mutola.
