John Mwangangi

ORIGIN John Mwangangi grew up as the youngest of four siblings in extremely poor conditions, 200km outside Kenya’s capital of Nairobi in the village of Mwingi in Eastern Province of on. With his first prize money from Europe, he acquired a private mountain bike and bought a water pump his mother to irrigate the fields. As the living in Kenya for now 3 years Swiss athletes coach Peter Pfister in 2006 for the first time saw the then only just under 16-year-old John Mwangangi, train athlete, he noticed this immediately as extraordinarily diligent, already at that time though a head smaller than that could keep others easily with the pace of the older athletes in training. At this time John Mwangangi lived with his uncle in Machakos and the fate would have it, that Peter Pfister was at that time also much in Machakos. Peter Pfister, a skilled businessman, comes originally from the Uster in Zurich and started an African-American shop until the year 2006. Now he has 12 young athletes in Kenya, he regularly takes with his athletes to race in the Switzerland and elsewhere in Europe part and already the definitive leap 5 of his proteges to Europe.
