Shortly after take off from an airstrip close to where the Maasai Olympics were being held today, a light aircraft carrying David Rudisha, the 800m World Record holder, and a number of other people connected to today’s event, was forced to make an emergency landing. One of the passengers was injured and is being treated at hospital. The others, including Mr. Rudisha, who is the patron of the Maasai Olympics, suffered no significant physical injuries. As is normal following any crash involving an aircraft, the Kenya Civil Aviation Authority will investigate. Until they have completed their report, it is not appropriate to comment further. The best wishes of Big Life and all involved in the Maasai Olympics are with the injured passenger for a speedy recovery.
