A Kenyan Olympic marathon gold medalist jumped to his death this past weekend when his wife caught him cheating on her in bed with another woman.
The runner, Sammy Wanjiru, leapt from the balcony of his home when his wife caught him
“Wanjiru came home with another woman friend around 11:30 p.m. and then when his wife came home and found them, she inquired who the lady was,” said Police Chief Jasper Ombati. “They got into an argument. His wife locked them in the bedroom and ran off.”
The couple had a turbulent history as Wanjiru was charged with threatening to kill his wife with an AK-47 last year. The couple went on to reconcile after the charges were dropped.
