Javelin Champion Julius Yego survives horrific accident (Photos)

Julius Yego has survived a night accident that left him hospitalized for the night. His vehicle was massively damaged but the athlete is in a stable condition.


Javelin champion Julius Yego was involved in a horrific accident yesterday night.

The Olympic silver medalist survived the accident and was admitted at the Eldoret Mediheal Hospital where he was making speedy recovery and was in a stable condition. The doctors though held him for the night for further tests and observation.

Julius Yego was driving his Toyota Prado when the accident occurred in Eldoret which according to pictures of the event show his car hit a trailer on the road. The car was extensively damaged which makes it a miracle that the star athlete not only survived but is in a stable condition currently.

He will however have to write off the vehicle which is said to be just one week old. Julius Yego took time today morning to post about his condition and assure his supporters and well-wishers that he was fine. This is what he had to say…

Julius Yego lives in Kapsabet, Eldoret where he has based his training and his family on wife Sincy and son Jarvis stays with him.  He became a popular figure in a short span rising from obscurity to world level attention. His story of self-training from YouTube to earning an Athletics scholarship and becoming a world beating athlete has endeared him to millions worldwide.

Other athletes and ordinary Kenyans have joined in wishing him quick and full recovery.
