Ferdinand Omanyala of Kenya has won the 100m race in Monaco in 9.92 seconds, ahead of Botswana’s teenager Letsile Tebogo (9.93). This was the sprinter’s first ever diamond league victory, illustrating that dreams do come true, even if they take time.

In a breathtaking display of athleticism, Ferdinand crossed the finish line in an astounding 9.92 seconds, securing the victory by a mere fraction of a second. The crowd erupted into cheers as the sprinter had done the seemingly impossible.

The common wealth winner additionally authored national history by becoming the first Kenyan to win a Diamond League 100m race. After the late Nicholas Bett, who won the 400m hurdles in Paris in 2016, he is the only other Kenyan sprinter to have won a Diamond League race.
