Is Kemboi taunting rivals with this baldish ‘Baba Yao’ haircut?

Could this be the haircut Ezekiel Kemboi will don during the 3,000m steeplechase finale at the Olympics?

Photos have emerged of the veteran athlete in jubilant mood ahead of the final race set to take place in Rio de Janeiro at  5:50pm Kenyan time on Wednesday.

The photos show him with no hair from the crown of the head to his nape. He has however left hair on the sides.

In one of the photos, Kemboi is carried shoulder high by fellow athlete Caleb Mwangangi while spotting the unique cut.

Kemboi, who is famed for his  celebratory jig at the finish line after winning races, also has a knack of spotting unique hairstyles during races.
