Kenya Lionesses back Janet Okello was named the athlete of the year at the 2019 Magharibi Michezo Awards held in Bungoma County on Monday 23 December 2019.

The Mwamba RFC player had earlier won the Women’s Rugby Player of the year award. Okello scored in each of their opening five matches at Africa Women’s Sevens as Kenya Lionesses finished second and booked a slot at the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan.

She later carried the form to Dubai where Kenya finished second in the Women’s invitational tournament. The back was also part of Kenya Lionesses 15s squad that won the Elgon Cup and finished second at the Africa Women’s World Cup 15s qualifiers.
