Nicholas Bett, world Championship 400m hurdles gold medallist, has died in a car crash.

The 28-year-old was killed in his home country Kenya near Nandi a day after returning from the Continental Championships in Nigeria.

Bett made history in China after becoming the first Kenyan to win a gold medal in a short distance race on the world stage.

He is a also two-time African Championship medallist, whose twin brother is also a 400 metres hurdler.

His family and county police commander Patrick Wambani confirmed the tragic news.

Nicholas Bett died in a road accident in Nandi County, Kenya.

Mr Bett died on the spot after the car he was driving hit a bump before losing control of his car at Sochoi near Lessos. The car veered off the road and landed in a ditch near Lessos along Eldoret-Kapsabet road on Wednesday morning.

Nandi Police Commander Patrick Wambani confirmed the death, saying preparations were being made to take Nicholas Bett's body to a nearby mortuary.

Bett - who was part of Team Kenya that competed at the just-concluded African Athletics Championships in Asaba, Nigeria - was travelling back home from Nairobi.

May his soul rest in perfect peace.

Why include Nigeria. It's like everything and anything that will give us bad publicity is welcomed.

He died in his country and I don't see a reason the heading of this news should be captioned like this.

Sensationalism!

with the way some of us stereotype insults with the country,even some of us is gone so bittered and emotionally battered on the inside,Op for example, pray for your country better than a curse,be well guided.

O death Why!!
Death is no respecter of Persons...

Living our Lives with Eternity in view is the best way to live....

It could be I who is Next to go..
It could be you...
It could be that Loved one by your side...

What matters is Your next Destination after Death..

We can only make the Choice now that we are alive..
We cannot Determine our Next Destination after Death...

Having JESUSCHRIST remains the Only way to Life here on Earth and after Death..
