The Chamgei FM Extravaganza drew out thousands of revelers and adoring fans of Kenyan athletes to celebrate their outstanding performance at the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics.
The 2016 Olympics was Kenya’s most successful Olympics to date, after winning 13 medals in total – a fete that earned them a well deserved top spot at the African Medal table.
The jam-packed event was held at Eldoret National Polytechnic Grounds on Sunday October 16, 2016. It brought together celebrated athletes and artists in the country, including 2016 Olympic Marathon gold medalist Eliud Kipchoge and gospel artist Bahati.
Here are some of the photos from the event
