17th May, 2019

In 2015, Kenya stood with her shoulders high among 165 countries that participated in the Los Angeles Special Olympics after bagging a total of 40 medals, 26 among them, gold.  Then class seven pupil Susan Gatwiri put her best foot forward to not only participate in the competitions but also bag two gold medals.
