The Kenyan who was born in Kovai in 1988, and trained at the St. Francis Kimuron Secondary School in Iten, is today the new World record holder in the 800m in 1:41.01. This talented athlete was initially a 400m runner (400m PB 45.5), while his coach, Colm O'Connell, promoted him to the 800m. In 2006, he became the World Juniors Champion over that distance.

Usain Bolt and Tyson Gay were performing tonight (06/08/10) in Stockholm for the Samsung Diamond league (stage 11), where Tyson won the race in 9.84s, when behind him was Usain Bolt in 9.97s!

For almost 30years, Lebanon has received no medals in athletics for the Arab School Championship, first, because there is no future plan to educate our young people to love the sport and athletics in particular, and second, because we don't give athletics its importance being the mother and the base of all sports.

On the other hand, in the 18th Arab School Championships and after so many years, Lebanon has finally rekindle the flame, that was almost extinguished, with a silver medal for Maria-Pia Rahme (youth 2) in the Javelin throw, with a throw at 28m50, and a bronze medal for the 4x100 meters relay team with a new national record for youth category, Krystel Saneh (youth 1), Celine Keyrouz (midget 2), Christelle ...

Qatar's promising champion Mutaz Issa Barshim, was able during this season to break the Arab juniors record many times in international tournaments, where he scored the first time in April in Kuwait in the GCC Tournament for Juniors 2.21m and then broke it in Cairo in the Arab Championship for Juniors in May (2.23m), and the record in Sweden July 7 (2.25m).
At the Asian Games, he set again a new Arab record for juniors by jumping 2m31. His intention in Moncton 2010 was to be the first Qatari to bring a Gold medal in World Championships, then he actually did by flying over the 2m30 high jump bar.
This record is also considered as Qatari standard record for juniors and seniors. Issa succeeded also during his training camp in Sweden in February to break Qatari indoor record for juniors and seniors (2.25m).
Finally he breaks the Arab record 4 times and the juniors and seniors also, and 1 record in the indoor for juniors and seniors, 14 records this season.
What's next Mutaz? An Olympic title in London 2012?
