Gatlin happy to visit 'motherland' Kenya
Former 100m Olympic champion Justin Gatlin says it is amazing and special to be in Kenya for the first time and looks forward to wonderful memories during his stay.
The American landed at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport on Wednesday night to compete at Saturday's World Athletics Continental Tour event at Moi Stadium, Kasarani.
"I have been to Africa before, specifically in South Africa as well as Morocco. However, I believe for you to say that you have come to Africa, you have to come to the motherland. It is a really special feeling for me to come to Kenya for the first time," Gatlin said.
