According to Omanyala, the development was a boost to the athletes for better preparation before the highly-anticipated event. Consequently, the preparations in Paris are in high gear for the Olympics set to take place in the summer of 2024. The marathon will be 42.195km.

“My main aim is to win the 2024 olympics 100 metres and this support comes in handy. As much as there is some other support, this one comes in handy and I believe it will go a long way in helping me prepare,” he told the press.
