Injera was always an intelligent athlete

02 June 2016, 18:16

Nairobi - Kenya sevens legend Collins Injera was always an intelligent athlete and ahead of his teammates in terms of skill and absorbing the game, according to his club coach John Mbai.

The 29-year-old Injera further cemented his place in rugby sevens folklore when he became the highest ever try-scorer in sevens history, beating the mark of 234 tries set by Argentine Santiago Gomez Cora, when he dotted down in London in the final event of the season.

Injera, who was first called up to the Kenya sevens squad in 2008, started to make his name in rugby at the Mwamba Rugby Club.

Mbai, who coached Injera when he first came to the club, said Injera was always a natural athlete.

Mbai said: "He is a natural athlete but he is also intelligent. This has heightened his ability to learn new skills and absorb game plans and puts him above the rest.

"He is a good example of what you can achieve if you put your mind to something. You can see that he thrives in everything that he does on and off the pitch. Even when he falls short, his efforts are easy to see."

Injera will hope to guide Kenya to a medal place at the Olympics in Rio later this year.
