Just to be clear, the much-vaunted Kenyan running culture wouldn't exist if hadn't been for John Velzian. He certainly belongs in the athletics hall of fame.
Also, I don't know why Rojo is trying to stir the racial waters when he knows full well Kenyan sports government has always been murky, especially in the past, with many coaches, black and white, falling victim to politics. This great man chose Kenya over the UK and ended up staying for 67 of his 94 years. He's a national hero.
