From the country that is well known for distance running to hurl over 80m, Self-proclaimed YouTube man Julius Yego is now the first Javelin thrower in history from Kenya beating his own national record with an 81.12m first round effort at the Finnish Elite Games. Since he came into the scene at the trials for the 2010 junors in Poland, Yego has been internally competing with himself to top the Kenyan standard in Javelin. Yego is definitely going places having improved his national standards from 78.38m which won him the All Africa Games in Maputo last September to the 79.95m he threw in Nairobi that entered him for London 2012 as special B-standard participant to the 81.12m at the home of Javelin on Sunday.
