The 1968 Olympics 10,000 m champion Naftali Temu, multiple award-winning middle and long-distance runner Kipchoge Keino and marathon world record holders Paul Tergat and Catherine Ndereba are among the Kenyan athletes celebrated at a newly opened museum in Nairobi. Modelled on the international olympic committee (IOC) museum in Lausanne, Switzerland, the project at the Kenyan athletics headquarters in Riadha House on Aerodrome Road in west Nairobi has taken two years to complete at an estimated cost of KSh6 million. The display includes life-size statues, photographs, medals and other memorabilia as well as computers that provide information about the nation's sporting heroes.
