Nicholas Bett Dead: Beijing 400m Hurdles Gold Medallist Dies In Road Accident by rhythyson: 10:24am On Aug 08, 2018
World Championship 400m hurdles gold medallist Nicholas Bett has died in a car crash.

The 28-year-old was killed in his home country of 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 took gold in the 2015 World Championships at the famous Bird's Nest stadium - home of the Olympics in 2008.

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

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

Bett died on the spot after the car he was driving veered off the road and landed in a ditch

The commander added that the athlete hit a bump before losing control of his car.

Bett's finest moment was magnificent run in the Bird's Nest stadium back in 2015 where the he ran a personal best 47.79seconds to claim the gold.

He did not qualify for the Olympic Games in Rio, but finished eighth in recent Commonwealth Games in Australia.

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 Inly way to Life here on Earth and after Death..
