Athletics sensation Salome Nyirarukundo became Rwanda's first female athlete to interrupt Kenyan dominance by taking gold in the 21km Kigali International Peace Marathon. The race was started 13 years ago to promote peace, after the devastating 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi that claimed over one million lives in 100 days.
