I was unsportsman and also aquaphobic, like I was not able to put my head underwater. Today I follow the drea of an Ironman World Championship and swimming is my favourite fraction.
Most embarrassing sport moment:
I started running a race in front of everyone, like Kenyan athletes do, I finish my energy at the third kilometer and I ended the race walking.
Proudest sport moment:
To say my first Ironman whould be discounted, it's a moment that literally changes your life...but if I have to be sincere, the moment that makes me more proud is the finish line of my first marathon, in 2015 in Rome. I came from a very bad injury (someone told me that I would not be able ro run anymore), less than 3 month after the injury I've taken this medal against everything and eveeryone.
