Field events

Kenyans have a record of a poor performance in the Field events, however in the year 2014 this record was changed when Julius Yego won the Javelin title at the Commonwealth games. He became the first Kenyan field athlete to win a gold medal.

The following year he took Kenya’s first World Championship gold in the field at the 2015 World Championships in Athletics in Beijing,¬†where he set a new Commonwealth record of 95.72m on his way to victory.
