Harambee Stars were runners-up to Egypt in the football championship of the All Africa Games of 1987. In the same football championship of the 1987 All Africa Games, Kenya drew 3 – 3 with Cameroon, a Cameroon side that comprised players who three years later in 1990, spectacularly beat then Football World Cup defending champions Argentina 1 – 0, in the opening game of the 1990 Football World Cup on 8th June 1990. Cameroon went on to become the first African team to reach the quarter-finals of the Football World Cup, where they lost 3 – 2 to England in extra-time in a hard fought and entertaining game in which both teams played their hearts out, one memorable moment being when then England captain and star goalkeeper, Peter Shilton, lost his cool and lashed out at his England defenders, after Cameroon narrowly missed scoring twice, in the space of about 5 minutes. It was indeed a hot game. That could have been us i.e. Kenya, at the quarter-finals of the 1990 Football World Cup, that could have been us. We are a sporting nation and by now, we should be returning from an Olympic Games outing with at least 18 gold medals, a Commonwealth Games outing with at least 23 gold medals, and an All Africa Games outing with at least 28 gold medals, in athletics, boxing, volleyball, swimming, hockey, football, rugby, cricket, judo, tae-kwon-do, karate and tennis. Kenya’s Robert Wangila (RIP) for instance, remains the only African to have won a gold medal in boxing at the Olympic Games, a feat he accomplished at the 1988 Seoul Olympic Games. Other milestones include Kenya’s gold medal in men’s hockey at the 1987 All Africa Games, Kenya beating the West Indies in a spectacular upset at the 1996 Cricket World Cup (the equivalent of the men’s Kenya National Football Team beating the men’s Brazilian National Football Team), Kenya making it to the semi-finals of the 2003 Cricket World Cup, the gold medals in swimming that Jason Dunford won at the 2006 Commonwealth Games, the Kenya Rugby Sevens Team winning the Singapore Sevens in 2016, Gor Mahia FC winning the 1987 Confederation of African Football (CAF) Africa Cup Winners Cup as mentioned above, Kenya topping the medal tables at the 2015 World Athletics Championships, the four world records broken in athletics in the space of four weeks by Henry Rono back in 1978, Jacob Okello emerging as runner-up in 1998 at the semi-high profile Kenya Open Golf Tournament, and in the years that Kenya’s Safari Rally was a World Rally Championship event (1973 to 2002), the victories of Joginder Singh in 1974 and 1976, the victories of Shekhar Mehta in 1973, 1979, 1980, 1981 and 1982, and Ian Duncan’s victory in 1994, Shekhar Mehta still being the record holder of most victories in the 30 years that Kenya’s Safari Rally was a World Rally Championship event (1973 to 2002). Numerous numbers of us should or could be earning a favourable living from sport by now;
