London - It took the very last effort and another national record for Julius ‘You Tube Man’ Yego to make history as the first Kenyan Javelin thrower to make the Olympics final on Wednesday night.
According to Capital News Yego, the African titleholder, took one look up and launched the Javelin well over the London night before it sailed past the 80m mark as it speared the field 81.81m to qualify him fifth in Group B.
Moments later, the 23-year-old Kenya Police officer was pumping his fist in a mixture of triumphant joy and utter disbelief of making the apex of his sport at his very first Olympics.
