Ferdinand Omanyala emerged fifth in The World Championships that were held in Oregon ,USA.He had arrived hours before the championship as a result of his visa being delayed .
“Every challenge that you face today makes you stronger tomorrow .The challenge of life is intended to make you better not bitter.Persistence and resilience only come from having been given the chance to work through difficult problems .No matter how much falls on us we keep moving,”Omanyala said.
According to The sports Principal Secretary Joe Okudo ,all athletes got their visas except Omanyala because some of the information needed by the Embassy was not disclosed in his application.
In his defence Ferdinand stated that the US Embassy would have communicated to him on new information needed.
The sprinter will directly travel to England , home of the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth games.
They will be the third commonwealth games to be hosted in England following London 1934 and Manchester 2002.
