Kenya's Olympic marathon champion dies after fall

Kenyan Olympic marathon champion Samuel Wanjiru died late Sunday after jumping from the first-floor balcony of his home in the Rift Valley, police told Reuters.

Regional police chief Jaspher Ombati said Wanjiru, 24, appeared to have suffered internal injuries after the fall and was confirmed dead by doctors at a nearby hospital.

"I can confirm that Wanjiru is dead. It is not yet clear whether it was a suicide or if he jumped out of rage, or what caused him to fall to the ground," Ombati told reporters.

"He jumped from his first-floor balcony to the ground. He was bleeding from the nose and the mouth, and may have suffered internal injuries," the police chief added.

Video footage showed police looking at blood stains on the ground below the balcony of Wanjiru's house in Nyahururu, a town in the Rift Valley some 150 km (94 miles) northwest of the capital Nairobi.

"Wanjiru's death is not only a loss to his family and friends but to Kenya as a whole and the entire world athletics fraternity," Prime Minister Raila Odinga said in a statement.

"As an athletics nation, we looked forward to a sterling performance in the Olympic Games in London next year. Mr Wanjiru was one of our sure bets for gold in the upcoming contest. His death is therefore a big blow to our dreams," Odinga said.


Ombati said police were investigating a possible love triangle that could have been behind the death of Wanjiru, the first Kenyan to win Olympic marathon gold at Beijing in 2008 and a former winner of the Chicago and London marathons.

Ombati said Wanjiru's wife, Triza Njeri, had come home to find the runner in bed with another woman, locked the couple in the bedroom and ran outside.

Wanjiru then leapt from the balcony, the police chief said.

Police said Njeri and Wanjiru's female companion were assisting with the investigation.

Last December, Wanjiru was charged with threatening to kill Njeri and the illegal possession of an AK-47 assault rifle.

Njeri later withdrew her accusation of attempted murder against him in court, saying the couple had reconciled.

Wanjiru also suffered minor injuries from a car crash in January when he swerved to avoid an oncoming truck, hit a pot hole and rolled his vehicle.

The runner defied the heat of Beijing in 2008 to triumph in an Olympic record time of two hours, six minutes and 32 seconds at the games held in China.

Wanjiru moved to Japan in 2002 as a young man to attend high school after winning a cross country selection trial in Kenya.

Designer Galliano to face French trial in June

Former Dior designer John Galliano will go on trial on June 22 on charges that he made racist insults, accusations that rocked the fashion world and cost him his coveted job.

Galliano's downfall began in February when he was detained in a drunken state and questioned about accusations that he hurled anti-Semitic insults at a couple in a Parisian cafe. The couple filed a legal complaint, and another woman then accused him of similar insults.

The Paris court announced the trial date Thursday. Prosecutors have said Galliano could face up to six months in prison and (EURO)22,500 ($31,000) in fines, if convicted of "public insults based on origin, religious affiliation, race or ethnicity."

Soon after the initial allegations, a video circulated online in which the designer praised Adolf Hitler.

On the eve of Paris Fashion Week, Dior fired Galliano after 14 years with the company and denounced
his comments.

Galliano issued a statement at the time saying: "Anti-Semitism and racism have no part in our society. I unreservedly apologize for my behavior in causing any offense." Galliano also said he was "seeking help" for his personal failures, without elaborating.

After joining Dior in 1996, Galliano made an indelible mark on the storied house, with theatrical, often outrageous, runway shows that were among the most-anticipated displays on the Paris fashion calendar.

Arnold Schwarzenegger & Maria Shriver: Prenup?

Now that word of their split is opening to settle, relations attorney Robert Brandt has stepped forward to species out the potential of a divorce between Arnold Scwarzenegger and Maria Shriver - even addressing whether the celebrated couple signed a prenup.

 Enjoy the Latest picture .

The relative’s legal representative addressed questions over whether the wildly rich pair signed an all-important prenuptial conformity before tying the knot, telling, "We are discussion about a globe celebrated actor who was making $20 million a film before he became governor. We are discussion about someone who is in the Kennedy family -- one of the most well-known, wealthy families in the globe. A case like this, if they don't work it out, could engage tremendous sums of wealth. We could be conversation about upwards of a billion dollars in net value."

The Los Angeles based lawyer continued, "Under California law, all the public property has to be similarly divided. So if we are conversation about a billion dollars in acquisitions -- from the date of wedding to the date of division -- each one of them is going to end up with half a billion dollars, completely."

Based on his skill, Brandt added, "I would have to feel that considering she was from the Kennedy clan, and he had already done many, many cinema and was really successful -- and he was an actor -- they definitely had to have thought about a prenuptial agreement."
