NAIROBI, Feb. 20 (Xinhua) -- Beijing Olympic Games 800m gold medalist, Wilfred Bungei of Kenya has quit athletics to pursue a career in politics in order to inspire youth to believe in themselves.

Bungei, 37, former world No. 1 in 2002, claimed the major title he coveted for long when he won the Olympic title in a time of 1:44.65 with a dominant front-running performance.

"As a motivational speaker who has been inspiring the youth, I want to go one step higher to offer political leadership and open for them opportunities that can impact on their living," he told Xinhua at the weekend during Kenya's National Cross Country Championships held in Nairobi.

Kenyans will go to the polls on Aug. 8 to elect almost 1,900 public officials including the president, senators, county governors, members of the national assembly, members of county assemblies, and women county representatives.

"I want to champion for change in sports management in the country and bring transparency in order to restore lost glory especially in athletics after we found ourselves on the wrong side of doping," he said.

Bungei said if elected to the national assembly, he will sponsor a Bill in Parliament that will cater for sportsmen and women in their retirement, especially after many of them fall into financial difficulties upon leaving athletics.

He said he will champion for the education of young athletes, most of who start earning a lot of money at a tender age and thereafter fall into financial ruin due to lack of acumen in handling their finances.
