Kipchoge crowned 2018 Sports Personality of the year

As expected, World marathon record holder Eliud Kipchoge was Friday named the 2018 Sportsman of the Year after beating a strong field of six competitors at the Safaricom Sports Personality of the Year awards (Soya) awards held at Fort Jesus in Mombasa.

Kipchoge, who won the award in 2016, was widely expected to win the award after a successful season which saw him crowned IAAF World Athlete of the Year, beating among others, fellow athletes Consenslus Kipruto, Elijah Manangoi, Kenya rugby sevens star William Lomu and Harambee Stars goalkeeper Patrick Matasi in what was a tight race.

Kenya women’s rugby team, Lionesses, coach Kevin ‘Bling’ Wambua was named coach of the year.
