They say humility and ambition almost never sit still in the same plate. That to achieve you must plough through the world with ruthless abandon. But see, that’s not entirely true; at least not for Athlete Joshua Cheptegei. It is no wonder that the news of his winning the 10.000 meters men’s race in Doha, Qatar didn’t come as a surprise.

A one James Muhindo couldn’t take the disappointment at arriving and alighting off a Uganda Airlines flight without tasting rolex. Even worse, there was a sweet aroma of the rolex, one of the favorites of the Ugandan street foods, but non to be eaten. Not that it had to be a whole rolex, he laments that at least it should have been half a rolex!
The team spirit was in the air. Yes, it was gold for an athlete but the fever of excitement that swept through all the team Uganda Athletes was nothing short of amazing. “…I know in Uganda they are going to celebrate for a full week!” an elated Halima Nakaayi told journalists. And indeed the country, at least the lightening-speed-like social-media section of the country did.
