Kenyan Olympic Marathon champion commits suicide

Posted by on 16 May 2011

Kenyan Olympic Marathon champion Samuel Wanjiru, 24, committed suicide on Sunday evening by jumping off the balcony of his home. Wanjiru, who specialized in long distance running, broke the world record in the half marathon in 2006 when he was only 18 years old. He was the first Kenyan national in history to win a gold medal in the Olympic Games in Beijing (2008). He apparently committed suicide after his wife caught him in bed with another woman late last night. May he rest in peace!
