Kenya tops African medal table

Nairobi – Kenya hauled in the highest number of medals among her African peers at the just concluded Olympic Games in Rio, finishing with a total of 13 medals.

Kenya finished ahead of South Africa which ranked 30th overall with a 10-medal haul and Ethiopia with eight medals which placed 44th.

Kenya was ranked 15th overall as its athletes brought home six gold, six silver and one bronze. Only nine African countries bagged medals at the Rio Games, for a total of 43 medals for the entire continent, a paltry sum compared to USA’s 46 gold medals out of a total of 121.

Kenya’s last gold medal was clinched on the closing day of the games on Sunday by Kenyan marathoner Eliud Kipchoge who romped to the finish line, winning in 2:08:44.
