The four-time Olympic Champion in the 200 and 400 meters, Michael Johnson, has revealed that Omanyala’s sprinting style is his weakness despite it being his stronghold as well.
Johnson believes his body conformation is his biggest undoing despite his recent success in the sprinting arena. However, he reckons Omanyala to be the first African to clinch a medal in the World Championships- no African has achieved the feet yet.
“I believe Omanyala will be the first African to win a 100m World Champs medal. His muscular structure provides tremendous power, but do any coaches or sport science experts out there think it could limit his ability to sprint efficiently?” Johnson posed on his social media handles.
The 100-meter Commonwealth champion has revolutionized sprinting in Kenya.
