Celestine Karoney


Born in Kenya’s North Rift - a region, associated with grooming world-beaters in middle and long distance running, it was only natural to fall in love with athletics at a young age. Her journey into Sports journalism however wasn’t bred exclusively from the love of athletics as she grew up watching all other sports. It was therefore a no brainer that she would opt for a career that kept her close to sports giving her the opportunity to report on the exploits of the finest sportsmen and women and getting close enough to live through the whirlwind of emotions that comes with victory or defeat. Since 2007 she has worked as a sports reporter in Kenya and around Africa.

She has covered major sporting events such as the Africa cup of nations, the World Athletics Championships and Olympic Games.
