金メダル  Gold medal

I watched the last award ceremony for the men's marathon of the 2020+1 Tokyo Olympics in the closing ceremony last night on TV.
Seeing the Kenyan gold medalist, I remembered Kenya’s Samuel Wanjiru, who won the men's marathon gold medal at the 2008 Beijing Olympics for the first time in Kenya.
About 2 weeks after he won the gold medal, I happened to meet him in Nairobi, Kenya on September 10, shaking hands with him, talking with him for a short time and having a picture taken with him.
As is seen in the picture, he was a small and shy guy, often using the Japanese words of ‘Arigato gozaimasu’, ‘Yoroshiku onegai shimasu’ and so on.
He was expected to repeat his winnings, but he passed away unfortunately.
I hope that all of those who won the (gold) medals and those who could not this time will get their own gold medals of life.
