So far, Nakhumicha has won more than 30 medals in various continental and international events – 12 gold medals, eleven silver, and ten bronze medals. She also held the World record in javelin (21.90m),which she set at the 1999 All Africa Games in Johannesburg before it was broken in London.
The Kenya Paralympic Committee organising secretary Ronald Milare described Nakhumicha’s achievement as a milestone.
“She has been at the top of her game for more than ten years and deserved to get the award. What this means is that there will be a lot of international attention on Kenyan Paralympics and this can only improve our standards,” he said.
