This is at a high school track meet in the Rift Valley of Kenya in the town of Mosoriot. Happened in February 2013, athletics in Kenya are really amazing as they could do things that a normal person could not do.

This shocked different social media users of how powerful the participants in this event were.

Athletics Kenya (AK) which headquartered in Riadha House (next to Nyayo National Stadium, Nairobi), is the governing body for the sport of athletics (track and field) in Kenya. It is currently run by Mr. Isaiah Kiplagat, and it is also a member of the IAAF and Confederation of African Athletics. AK organizes competitions held in Kenya, as well as sending Kenyan teams to international championships.

Kenya is a powerful nation in Athletics, especially long-distance and mid-distance running. Famous Kenyan runners typically come from districts like Keiyo, Marakwet and Nandi in western Kenya. Almost all of them represent Kalenjin tribes.
