Only a few hours after Kenya’s David Rudisha gave the country a second gold in the ongoing Olympic in Brazil, his wife celebrated the amazing victoru by feeding the unfortunate in Eldoret town.
The 800m world champion hit top gear in the final 300 meters to become the first man since New Zealander Peter Snell in the year 1964 to efficaciously guard the Olympic 800m trophy.
The racer crossed the line in 1.42.15, several meters ahead of Algeria’s Taoufik Makhloufi, while fast-finishing American Clayton Murphy clutched a bronze medal.
Liz Rudisha in collaboration with their children Sheryl Rudisha and Patience Ntamei uttered their joy by nursing the street children.
Liz said her spouse did it for Kenya and it was satisfying to rejoice the victory with the less privileged.
“When my husband left the country for Rio, he had promised our 11-month daughter a gold medal and true to his promise, he delivered it”, she said.
It was during the preceding London Olympic Games that Rudisha broke the 800m world record 1:40.91.
