African Champion Ferdinand Omanyala ran under 10 seconds for the first time this season, as he clocked 9.98 to finish second behind American Chris Coleman at the Prefontaine Classic in Eugene, Oregon, on Saturday night.

Omanyala enjoyed massive support in the stadium from Kenyans living in the United States, and he believes he is showing that he is steadily growing towards the Olympic Games in Paris this summer.

“It is always a good feeling, seeing Kenyans around the world supporting you. It’s motivating honestly, and I feel great that I’m giving them something that’s exciting.

This season is all about progress and I’m glad that the progress is going on well, and we want just to time that Olympic period and get it right then,” Ferdinand Omanyala said after the race.

Omanyala finished second behind Coleman who manage to clock 9.95 seconds few seconds ahead of Omanyala who clocked 9.98 seconds.

This race comes after Omanyala finished second last weekend at the Atlanta City Games but he clocked 10 seconds.
