Kenya star has 223 sevens tries
Winger seven short of record
Looking forward to Olympic debut
Shares exercise tips for sevens
If Collins Injera breaks the all-time try-scoring record at this weekend’s Singapore Sevens, you wouldn’t blame the TV camera operators for taking a step back.
The last time the Kenyan rugby star passed a significant milestone, he celebrated by ruining a lens worth a reported £60,000 ($85,000).
Having waited an agonizingly long time to finally post his 200th international sevens try, the winger was relieved to touch down at the London finale of the 2014-15 World Series. He took a pen out of his sock and scrawled his signature on the camera.
“What I had planned to do, originally I had worn an inner vest – a white vest that was written ‘First in Africa’ – but then played the first three games on day one without scoring,” Injera tells CNN’s World Rugby show.
