Subject: Kenya Olympic marathon star Sammy Wanjiru dies in fall

Written By: Philip Eno on 05/16/11 at 1:15 am

Kenyan Olympic marathon champion Samuel "Sammy" Wanjiru has died after falling from a balcony at his home in the Rift Valley town of Nyahururu, say police.

Officials said Mr Wanjiru had suffered internal injuries and they were trying to establish whether he had leapt deliberately or fallen by accident.

Mr Wanjiru was the first Kenyan to win Olympic gold in the marathon.

But last December, he was charged with threatening to kill his wife and illegal possession of an AK-47 firearm.
