Rio, BRAZIL: All that glitters is not gold goes the old saying, but to Kenyan latest Athletics stardom Faith Kipyegon the epigram fell short.
The 22 year-old not only came to light for bagging home a gold medal in the women’s 1500m race at the ongoing Rio Games on Wednesday, but also her elegant look.
Men who were glued on their TV screens watching the race realized Kipyegon had another talent besides athletic, and this was nothing but beauty.
They took to twitter shortly after the race expressing how charming Kipyegon was with some even posting her photo on social media captioned with admirable messages.
