Like Father Like Son: Omanyala’s Son Wins School Competition (VIDEO)

July 25, 2023

They say the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree and this could not be truer for Kenya’s top speedster Ferdinand Omanyala and his son, Quinton Finn Omanyala.

On a weekend when Omanyala senior made history by becoming the first Kenyan to win a 100 metres race in the Diamond League, Omanyala junior was simultaneously dominating the track at his school’s sports day.

Omanyala’s fiancée, Laventa Amutavi, took to social media Saturday to share a video that captured some of the moments at Quinton’s sports day at Kasarani Junior School.

With pride, Laventa drew a comparison between their son and his dad, as Quinton outpaced fellow students to win “gold”.

“What is your why??? @quintonfinnomanyala is my why. @ferdiomanyala look at your son. He wants to be just like you. #sportsday #inspiringkids,” she wrote.

Unsurprisingly, Laventa, an athlete herself, won the parents running competition, to make it a hat trick of wins for the Omanyalas.

Check out all the action in the video below.
