International media houses have highlighted Kenya as a country of hot, incredible athletic talent. This has happened after Team Kenya topped the medal ranking at the Beijing World Athletics Championships games. The big winners include Javelin sensation Julius Yego, David Rudisha in the men’s 800m, Vivian Cheruiyot in the 10,000m race, Ezekiel Kemboi and Hyvin Jepkemoi making it big in the men’s and women’s 3,000m steeplechase respectively.
“Our young people have once again shown that they are as good as the world’s best and brightest,” President Uhuru Kenyatta Tweeted after the final medal was gotten by Asbel Kiprop in the 1500m race. Here are some of the things that the Kenyan athletes can do to maintain their superb performance.
1. Avoid pointless affairs
Some Kenyan athletes are well known for partying too much, buying luxury stuff for show off and having many women in their lives. This serves as a detrimental option for rewarding themselves; a path to self-destruction. I’d recommend that they instead plan accordingly, lead a worthwhile life, engage in useful projects that are geared towards building their brands and their immediate society. This way, they’ll get time to prepare for future games and not wane off.
A perfect way to staying afloat in their stardom realm would be working hard towards achieving even greater heights in work and social life by investing in a business or long term projects. This may include buying shares, starting a sports club and much more. If they do this, they’ll ultimately perform even better – due to motivation and assurance about the future – and bring us more medals.
