Kip Keino stretches his legs at the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich, Germany.
In a glittering career, the Kenyan athlete won gold medals in both the 1968 and 1972 Olympic Games as well as three golds at the Commonwealth Games .
Keino's success led to him becoming a Kenyan national hero as well as a figure admired across the African continent.
Upon finishing retiring from athletics, Keino turned his attention to another of his passions -- philanthropy. Alongside his wife, Phyllis, he opened an orphanage in Kenya's Rift Valley.
As time progressed, Keino became involved in more charitable causes. In the year 2,000 he opened a primary school that caters for around 300 children aged between the ages of 6 and 13.

Kip Keino stands outside the elite sporting academy that bears his name. The facility was opened in 2007 with the aim of helping promising young Kenyan athletes to fulfill their potential.
