Rio Olympic Games – Track & Field Wrap-Up

Medalists Ruth Jebet and Eunice Kirwa produced the top performances among the 25 Personae-managed athletes competing at the '16 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.

The two medals earned by Ruth Jebet and Eunice Kirwa in Rio matched the total medals earned by Personae-managed athlete contingents in both the ’12 London and ’08 Beijing Games.  With the Rio group producing 10 top-10 finishers, it had the best show of depth among the Personae athletes competing in the three most recent Olympic Games, as the ’12 London and ’08 Beijing groups had 6 and 7 finishers in the top-10, respectively.

The ten top finishers in Rio were:  Ruth Jebet (Olympic Champion – 3000m Steeplechase); Eunice Kirwa (Silver Medal – Marathon); Alice Aprot Nawowuna (4th – 10000m); Ferguson Rotich (5th – 800m); Gesa Krause (6th – 3000m Steeplechase); Alfred Kipketer (7th – 800m) and Albert Rop (7th – 5000m); Rose Chelimo (8th – Marathon); Philip Milanov (9th – Discus); and Abraham Cheroben (10th – 10000m).
