Kenya wins more medals in Deaflympics

Kenya Friday bagged bronze medals in both women’s 200metres, and 4x100m relays at the ongoing 24th Summer Deaflympics in Caxias Do Sul, Brazil.

Beryl Wamira finished third in women’s 200m in 25.50 seconds, behind Pamera Losange of France and Oceana Brown of USA who finished first and second in 23.93 and 24.92 respectively.

In women’s 4x100m, the Kenyan team of Beryl Wamira, Anzazi Nyondo, Rael Wamira and Linet Fwamba finished third in 51.15.

Ukraine finished first in 48.96 ahead of USA who timed 50.25.

“When I started the race, I was really hoping for a silver but I have an injury.Almost at the finish line I got beaten but a bronze is better than nothing,” said Wamira who is also the Team Kenya Deaf women’s captain.

“I have had a problem with my hips since 2017. I have gone to hospitals so many times for check-ups, an x-ray was even done but the doctors said they found nothing wrong. But when I am training or running I can feel the pain.”

With the additional two bronze medals, Kenya’s medal tally in the Games, which end Sunday increased to 16 (three gold, four silver and nine bronze). Kenya is top in Africa and 12th globally.
