Glamour as athlete Mercy Cherono weds Sh10m mCHEZA winner – PHOTOS
Sorry guys, Kenya’s arguably hottest female athlete Mercy Cherono is taken. The star is still bubbling with excitement following her recent engagement to businessman Edmond Ng’etich.
The 26-year-old reigning 5,000m Commonwealth champion got hitched to Ng’etich in a lavish engagement party held on December 19.
This event was graced by hundreds of friends and family, including Cherono’s fellow athletes and close pals Janeth Jepekosgei and Eunice Sum, who won the 800m World title in 2007 and 2013 respectively.
Cherono, who finished fourth over the same distance during the Rio Olympics last year, later posted a statement on social media to express her joy.
“It was my special day.” she said, adding; “I thank my love Edmond, planning committee, parents, friends, athletics family and everyone who took a step to make it (the event) successful, thanks once more for the unconditional love and unwavering support, you made my day colorful and unforgettable. I give praise to God.”
The engagement function was, indeed a colourful function with the couple settling on glowing white as the theme colour.
