Following his 100-meter capitulation on home soil, Ferdinand Omanyala’s coach has calmed the nerves after disclosing the reason the National champion failed to live up to the billing.

In the highly anticipated Absa Kipkeino Classic, Omanyala finished 5th in the 100-meter dash (10.03) – American Kenny Bednarek finished first after clocking 9.91.

Speaking via Nation, Geoffrey Kimani- Omanyala’s coach, disclosed that Omanyala finishing 5th was a result that it was his first outdoor event of the season.

“Omanyala is in the likes of past sprinters like John Regis. He took a regeneration break after the indoor season and is now building towards the outdoors.

“He just did his first 100m race in eight months and although the weather in Nairobi wasn’t the perfect cocktail, all will be well,” Kimani said.

Additionally, he revealed the preparation program for the upcoming Paris Olympics.

“Omanyala is genetically predisposed with bulky muscles, therefore we are working to make him lean, but strong without hypertrophy training for body-builders or science of adding muscles to the body through the Perfect Rate Model or in a nutshell starting all over again after the world indoor season,” Kimani added.
