Baringo - The Standard reports local teachers outsmarted world-beating track stars to clinch key positions at Athletics Kenya County polls.
The teachers, who handle youth and junior athletes in primary and secondary schools, capitalised on the closely-knit networks at grassroots level to win the elections.
Former Kenya Secondary Schools Sports Associations Chairman Barnabas Kitilit beat Barcelona Olympics 3,000m steeplechase champion Mathew Birir for the chair’s seat in Baringo County. Interestingly, Birir is Kitilit’s former student.
