By Fred Maingi in Nairobi
Gor Mahia coach Zdravko Logarusic left the country on Monday for a
week’s break in his native Croatia.
    Club deputy secretary General Ronald Ngala told our writer after
the Tusker versus Sofapaka tie at the Nyayo National Stadium that the
Croatian coach opted to travel and visit his family since the team has
no weekend assignment.
   He disclosed that the Croatian coach who is credited for
transforming the team’s dismal performance in the first leg to another
great level is expected back on September 21st.
     ‘We have  given him time off to go and visit his  family back
home.He needs a rest by joining  his family  back home.We are
delighted  with his performance with the team and hopefully,if he
maintains that graph, we shall extend his contract  when the current
one  expires after the League season”Observed Ngala.
   Gor K’ogalo are currently second in the Tusker Premier League
(TPL). with 43 points,  two points behind  table leaders and arch
rivals AFC Leopards

Meanwhile Jason Dunford bagged two medals for Kenya  on wednesday in the Davis$Shirtliff
sponsored Africa Swimming championships at the Moi International
Sports Centre, Kasarani in Nairobi, Kenya.
After winning the 100m butterfly on Tuesday, Dunford won Kenya’s
second gold and another silver in the men’s 50m butterfly
and 100m freestyle respectively to bring Kenya’s tally to five medals
which he has so far single handedly won at the end of the third day of
the 11th edition of the continental showpiece
Dunford lost the gold in a closely contested competition  by being
edged out by  South Africa’s Brown Myles in a time of 51.06 against
his rival’s 51.20 as Algeria’s Ousama Sahnoune won bronze by clocking
“The pool was not visible and I could not tell whether Myles was close
to me. I thought I was quite a head of the pack and failed to
noticeMyles  touching the bar ahead of me,” said Dunford.
In the 50m butterfly, Dunford returned 24.05 to secure the gold
relegating Algeria’s Ousama Sahoune to the second place in 25.49 as
Angola’s Joao Matia took the bronze by timing 25.59 to deny Kenya’s
veteran Ramadhan Vyombo who finished fourth by clocking 25.81 the last
podium finish place.
Dunford was aided by a good dive into the pool under thunderous cheer
by the home crowd at the Aquatic Complex on his way to the 50m
butterfly glory.
Kenya’s Hamdan Bayusuf was placed sixth in the men’s 200m backstroke
by timing 2:12.48 in a race won by Tunisia’s Taki Mrabet in 2:06.65 as
South Africa’s Myles Brown (2:07.19) another gold to settle for the
silver as compatriot Ricky Ellis(2:08.52) won bronze.
Another Kenyan finalist, Sonia Cege settled for the sixth spot by
timing 5:24.62 in the women’s 400m freestyle in an event won by South
Africa’s Webber Michelle (4:19.60) as Egypt’s Reem Hussein (4:26.55)
was second and South Africa’s Rene Warnes (4:28.25).
