Africa’s fastest man in the 100m, Ferdinand Omanyala, says he is pumped up for the world record of 9.58 currently held by Jamaican Usain Bolt after setting a time of 9.77 at Saturday’s Kip Keino Classic.
Omanyala, who was gifted a brand new Toyota Harrier by betting firm OdiBets on Wednesday, said such gestures have only increased his desire to repay the faith with a shot at the world record.
“Now that I have come this far, there is no reason why I should not set a new record. All that is required is to maintain the focus ahead and believe in myself,” the Tokyo Olympics semi-finalist said.
