In athletics – the great Wilson Kiprugut, Kenya’s first Olympic medalist, has died at the age of 84 after a long illness.
Kiprugut won a bronze medal in the 800M at the 1964 Olympics in Tokyo and followed that up with a silver over the same distance in Mexico City four years later.
“Being the first Kenyan to win a medal in Olympic Games, and the race being 800M, is really a great inspiration. The 800M has been a race for the Kenyans because of Wilson Kiprugut. He made our country proud,” double Olympic and current World 800M Champion David Rudisha told BBC Sport Africa.
Only in the USA – sports betting is exploding across the US.
So far this year to September, total sports betting in the US has reached US$62Billion, up from US$58B in 2021 and killing 2020’s total of US$22B.
Imagine the impact of the upcoming FIFA World Cup where the U.S. is pooled with Wales, England, and Iran.
In boxing – all the fakery is catching up with Youtube wannabe boxer, Jake Paul.
Given his social media reach is over 30 million followers, selling just two hundred thousand buys for his last fight vs grandpa Anderson Silva is a shocking return.
And that’s by his fake counting! Insiders say pay-per-view sales were less than 100,000 buys.
Jake Paul’s fake boxing career is on a slow burn to zero.
