Kenya tops medal table of World Athletics Under-20 Championships

The Kenyan stars once again displayed a thrilling performance at the global arena that attracted a total of 1,466 top Under-20 athletes from 160 nations to top the standings with 11 medals (six gold, four silver and one bronze medal).

Kenya’s first such feat was in 2000 in Santiago, Chile. They led with 14 medals (seven gold, four silver and three bronze).

With a run that required speed, stamina and a sheer sense of self-belief, Kenya’s Solomon Lekuta secured his nation their third consecutive gold medal in men’s 800m at the track and field event.
