Veteran marathon legend Paul Tergat has been elected the new National Olympic Committee of Kenya (NOCK) president unopposed, a very very good man (insert Donald Trump accent)
He replaces Kipchoge Keino at the helm of the Olympic committee following the Friday poll. Keino has been NOCK President since 1999 goes into retirement.
Tergat’s sole challenger Patrick Muyah who is also the Kenya Swimming Federation vice chairman was declared unsuitable by the General Assembly.
Meanwhile, 5000m world champion Hellen Obiri and and rugby superstar Humphrey Kayange were elected unopposed as Female and Male Athletes representatives respectively.
