Kenyan athletes you didn’t know were born in December



I think being born in December might be a win for December babies since the festivities usually come with so much excitement and traveling as well. Also since people are usually paid early, guys start spending by getting gifts for their loved ones and themselves.

Quite a good number of Kenyan athletes were born in December and it would be interesting if at one time they join their birthdays and have one mega party.

1. David Rudisha

The two time World Champion 2011 and 2015, and world record holder in the 800 metres is among the athletes who have been born in December. He was born in 1988 on the 17th .

2. Bernard Langat
