Rono Suprisses

Shares

Whether it was a gamble or an investment, it paid off handsomely for Janet Rono. The Kenyan was not one of those invited to run the Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon on Sunday (20), but she decided to spend a thousand dollars on an air ticket, entered as a member of the public, slept on a colleague’s floor, and then proceeded to break the course record, if only by one second, but more importantly carried off the first prize of US$34,000. Normally, that is the sort of stunt that only a hedge fund manager can get away with.
