Athletes to be feted

21 August 2013, 09:15

Nairobi - The Kenyan government has promised to give cash awards of KES 1.5m to every gold medal winner, KES 800 000 and KES 500 00 for silver and bronze holders respectively.

Deputy President William Ruto said on Tuesday that this will be done at a function to be presided over by President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Kenya finished fourth overall, with five gold, four silver and three bronze medals, after the United States, Russia and Jamaica, but failed to hit its 17 medal target.

Kenyan gold medalists were Kiplagat (marathon), Asbel Kiprop (1,500m), Milcah Chemos (3,000m steeplechase), Ezekiel Kemboi (3,000m steeplechase) and Eunice Sum (800m).
