Kenya’s former 400m hurdles world champion Nicholas Bett has died aged 28. He died following a car crash on Wednesday.
Bett had just returned from the Africa Championships in Nigeria when he died in Nandi, north-west Kenya.
Nicholas made history in 2015 in China by becoming the first Kenyan to win a world gold at a distance shorter than 800m. He was a two-time African bronze medallist and his twin brother Haron Koech is also a hurdler.
Athletics Kenya confirmed Bett’s death on Twitter, while Kenyan sports minister Rashid Echesa tweeted his condolences to the Bett family.
