Nairobi – Chances of Ezekiel Kemboi becoming the first Kenyan to win two Olympics steeplechase gold medals were dealt a potentially mortal blow on Thursday after he was charged with assault at a court in Eldoret.
The two-time men 3,000m water and barriers world champion was charged with assaulting and injuring 26-year-old Ann Njeri Otieno on Wednesday night.
Kemboi, who won the gold medal at the Athens Olympics in 2004 before adding the world titles in Berlin 2009 and Daegu last year, was released on a Sh50,000 bond and a cash bail of Sh20,000 after he denied the charges.
