Biographie

Nabiba Naftali TEMU

Naftali Temu made his international début at the 1964 Tokyo Olympics, where he was 49th in the marathon. Temu’s big breakthrough came at the 1966 Commonwealth Games, where he defeated world record holder Ron Clarke in the 6-miles to win gold. At the 1968 Olympics, in the 10K final, only Ethiopian Mamo Wolde could follow Temu’s pace in the thin air of Mexico City. Wolde took the lead at the bell, but Temu passed him on the final straight to win the gold. Four days later, Temu took bronze in the 5,000. Three days later, Temu also ran the Olympic marathon, where he again had a great battle with Wolde, but the latter broke free just after the 30 km mark, and an exhausted Temu struggled home in 19th place. Temu had little success in the final few years of his athletics career. He retired from sports in 1973 and later ran a farm in North Mugirango.

Personal Bests: 5000 – 13:36.6 (1971); 10000 – 28:21.8 (1971); Mar – unknown.
