Africa’s 100m record holder Ferdinand Omurwa Omanyala remains focused on his career despite the recent withdrawals of his management and legal teams.
Omanyala is yet to give reasons as to why DBA Africa and SNOLEGAL Sports and Entertainment Law ended their association with him.
Speaking in Eldoret during the National Olympic Committee (NOC-K) Award gala, Omanyala said that he “had to keep quiet and the fire was slowly coming down”.
“As an athlete, I don’t want to say anything concerning the two companies but focus on my career” he told The Star.
The multiple record holder is also determined to nurture upcoming sprinters who he hope will have an easier ride when they burst onto the scene.
“In the sprints, I may be the first born in this category. I have been punched and punctured left right and centre but those coming behind me are going to have an easy ride”
“I believe in the foundation and consistency I have set. Hopefully, it has inspired someone and ten years from now, we will have more sprinters in the country” he added.
