Ferdinand Omanyala's younger brother Isaac Omurwa has disclosed the three key things that have changed since he started working with coach Geoffrey Kimani.

Commonwealth Games 100m champion Ferdinand Omanyala changed coaches late last year and started working with his new coach, Geoffrey Kimani, who also has his younger brother Isaac Omurwa, and wife Laventa Amutavi under his ranks.

So far, Omurwa has achieved great milestones and observed improvements in his body since he started working with the veteran tactician.

He explained that the coach is very professional and has experience in training them. Due to this, Omurwa has achieved great improvements in almost every area of his body including mental and physical strength.

“Working with Coach Kimani has changed a lot of things and I’m pushing myself knowing that when I train with the great, I’ll also be great.

“He has influenced everything and the coach is great…he has the experience and he is very professional. My mental strength, physique, and my speed have improved. I think everything has changed,” Omurwa said in an interview.

Meanwhile, Omurwa has also been able to achieve great milestones, just at the age of 20 as he received his first call-up to the national team as a senior athlete. Omurwa joined the national team camp for the 4x100m relay team by the National Olympic Committee of Kenya, something he does not take for granted.

On his part, he started his 2024 season at the second Athletics Kenya weekend meet held at the Ulinzi Sports Complex where he finished an impressive fourth, stopping the clock at 10.61.

Omurwa then proceeded to the third AK weekend meet at the Nyayo National Stadium, finishing third in the 100m where he clocked 10.36 to cross the finish line. He was also hoping to make the cut to the African Games but narrowly missed after finishing fourth in 10.38 during the national trials held at the Nyayo National Stadium.
