Solomon Mutai is representing Uganda in the marathons in Rio Olympics 2016

In the 2015 World Championships in Beijing, Solomon Mutai won a bronze, the only medal for Uganda in that event after marathon hero Stephen Kiprotich faltered and finished sixth. Mutai even finished before Kenyan predicted winners Wilson Kipsang and world record holder Dennis Kimetto.
