President Yoweri Museveni on Wednesday afternoon awarded Uganda's athletes with luxurious vehicles, following their remarkable performances at the just-concluded 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
Museveni also promised to build a house for each Gold medalist, as well as reward all of Uganda's medalists with cash.
The reward comes a day after the athletes received a hero's welcome at Entebbe International Airport, Kampala.
Joshua Cheptegei won gold in the men's 5,000m final and silver in the men's 10,000m. Peruth Chemutai won gold in the women's 10,000m final, while Jacob Kiplimo took bronze in the men's 10,000m final.
