Harambee Stars star forward Michael Olunga has been named the most outstanding male sports personality of the year 2021. Olunga was feted in absentia during the annual Sports Personality of the Year awards ceremony held in Naivasha on Saturday, February 21, 2021.

Despite 2020 having been disrupted by the Covid-19 pandemic, Olunga has had an outstanding year, becoming the top scorer for Kashiwa Reysol in his maiden season in the Japanese top-flight league.

His exploits earned him a big move to Qatari side Al Duhail SC, where he has already scored four times.

Olunga could however not make it for Harambee Stars’ back-to-back Africa Cup of Nations Qualifiers.

World Half Marathon record-holder Peres Jepchirchir was recognized in the same capacity as well.
