Samuel Wanjiru

Sammy tar som förste kenyan hem guldet på marathon i OS Peking 2008.

Gårdagen präglades till stor del av det oerhört tragiska beskedet att en av de absolut främsta löparna dessvärre lämnat jordelivet. Samuel Wanjiru, den regerande olympiamästaren i marathon från OS i Peking 2008, avled igår efter ett fall (hopp?) från sin balkong efter ett märkligt och mystiskt kärleksdrama.

Jag minns han otroliga lopp från Peking där han under ett pressande värme pulvriserade allt motstånd och satte nytt olympiskt rekord med tiden 2:06.32 och samtidigt blev den föste (!) kenyanen i historien som vann ett OS-guld på marathondistansen. Efter framgången i Peking vann han London (2:05.10) och Chicago marathon 2009. Året därpå försvarade han sin titel i Chicago efter en mäktig slutspurt och forcering mot Kebede.

Wanjiru är även den näst snabbaste mannen någonsin genom tiderna på på halvmarathon med 58:35, en tid som endast Zersenay Tadesse straffat (58:23).

Wanjirus död är självfallet oerhört tragiskt. Uppenbarligen var han inte helt i balans på det privata planet men på löparbanorna vred han ofta ut och in på sina motståndare. Jag kan inte låta bli att känna en viss frustration, hans allt för tidiga bortgång känns så oerhört onödig och bortkastad.

Wanjiru blev endast 24 år gammal.
