NATIONAL: Innocent SIMIYU (KEN) (worldrugby.org, 4 Feb 2018)


National team: 2011 at the Wellington Sevens
Influence: "When I joined the national team, the likes of Humphrey (KAYANGE), Gibson WERU, Innocent SIMIYU, Collins INGERA and (Lavin) ASEGO mentored me and taught me a lot with regards to sevens. Also, Mike FRIDAY (ENG), but Benjamin AYIMBA (KEN), my former coach, takes this one because he gave me the opportunity to become who I am." (ur7s.com, 29 Oct 2013)
Additional information

INTERNET SENSATION
Footage of OUMA at the 2016 Wellington Sevens went viral after Sonny Bill WILLIAMS lined up OUMA for a hit, but OUMA barrelled over WILLIAMS, knocking him to the ground. WILLIAMS admitted: "Sometimes you just have to admit you came up second best." OUMA said: "I didn’t even know it was him until I saw it on the big screen, and then I was like, 'OK, so that was Sonny Bill WILLIAMS'. The boys are making fun of it. It is all over the internet." (couriermail.com.au, 2 Feb 2016)


RETURN
Signed a contract to play rugby for Kandy SC in Sri Lanka in late 2014, but returned to Kenya in November 2015 after the Sri Lanka Rugby Union excluded overseas players from the league. (the-star.co.kem 12 Nov 2015; ur7s.com, 11 Nov 2014)
