  • He has been awarded as the best

St Anthony Boys Kitale youngster Aldrine Kibet has been named as the LG/ SJAK Sports Personality of the Month of August.

The 17-year-old footballer was exceptional in August, scoring seven goals, including two in the finals, during the Kenya National School Games in Kakamega. His outstanding performance helped his school win the national title, and he was also named the Most Valuable Player (MVP) of the tournament.

“This award is another huge motivation especially as I prepare to travel to Spain for trials in a football academy. I could not imagine that I would be recognized and rewarded by LG and sports journalists. I am thankful for the award and I promise to do better in my football career,” Kibet said.

It was the first time a student won the LG/SJAK monthly award since Gor Mahia’s Benson Omalla (then a student at Kisumu Day and a player of Western Stima) was feted three years ago. For his achievement, Kibet was awarded an LG 55” NanoCell TV retailing at KES.118,000.

Phenomenal performance

LG Electronics EA Managing Director Dongwon Lee lauded the record-breaker for his phenomenal performance this season that saw him score a total of 25 goals in the school’s campaign.

“Kibet demonstrated that hard work and discipline in sports yield results. It is even more impressive that Kibet is winning an award that has been dominated by superstars and senior sports personalities. His success on the football pitch is an inspiration to young footballers and the entire sports fraternity in the world,” Lee said.

The youngster was awarded ahead of world beaters, World Championship gold medalists Faith Kipyegon and Mary Moraa.

He also edged out volleyball sensation Sharon Chepchumba who shone brightly, as she was named the Most Valuable Player (MVP) during the Africa Volleyball Championships held in Cameroon last month.

Rugby youngster Jackson Siketa of Koyonzo High School School who scored 10 tries during the national school games in Kakamega was also among the nominees.
