Come to the World Championships in Budapest, several players will have a point to prove- they include the 2015 World Javelin Championships winner, Julius Yego.
Since winning the World Championships in Beijing back in 2015, Yego’s career has been in the mud because of relentless injuries.
At 34 years old, Yego is in the last years of his career and hopes to leave an indelible mark in the sport. He promises to give his best in Hungary- where the World Championships will be held.
“I am happy, and I thank God I am free of injuries. Since 2016, I have not done well either in the World Championship or the Olympics,” he told Citizen Digital last month.
“I now feel good, strong, ready, and determined to reclaim my 2015 world gold medal in javelin.”
This season he has managed to throw a season-best of 81.84 during the National Championships, and believes it will act as a fuel for better performance. Yego last reached the 90s mark in 2015 when he hit 92.72m, an African record, to win gold in Beijing, China.
