Omanyala was yet to leave the country by Wednesday night even as his team and Athletics Kenya (AK) officials scrambled to get him cleared.
He actually set and broke his own national record on the same night as he ran times of 6.65 and 6.63 in the 60m heat and the final respectively.
"My small piece of advice to him (Omanyala) is to treat the sport as a profession. Above all, he should have character, education and support. I believe he already has them and these three things will drive him through to the next 15 years," Kipchoge stated.
The 100-metre African record holder is expected to be unveiled today morning by Aids Healthcare Foundation (AHF), as the African ambassador for its Vaccinate Our World (VOW) Campaign.
