The hand that giveth is the hand that receiveth. This is now visible with our own gold medalist and World record holder, Joshua Kiprui Cheptegei. He is a Ugandan long-distance runner, Olympic Gold Medalist, World Champion, World Cross Country Champion.

Following the recent Olympics in Tokyo he was able to come back home with a gold medal after
shining bright in 5000m in our athletics round up from Tokyo. On returning back to Uganda he
was well received by the government Top Dogs and very many other people. Which he was very
pleased with.

Fellow Ugandans,I have spent the last couple of days savoring the warm reception you have
accorded the entire Uganda Olympic Team following the just concluded #Tokyo2021 I am
particularly grateful to H.E the president of the Republic of Uganda, and First Lady, Janet
Museveni” Joshua Cheptegei tweeted.

More so, following the worm welcome and the very many gifts he received from different people
and companies like MTN he decided to share with all those that took part in the Olympics as away
of inspiring them.

Having received 50M for his gold medal and 25M for his sliver medal. He exchanged his 25M
with Jacob Kiplimo and also 10M to Stephen Kissa who was also part of the 10,000M line up at
the Olympic Games. He says he is doing this to inspire them and all the others. He also promised
to get another medal from in Paris come 2024.
