Comedian to compete in Rio Olympics….

Kuniaki Takizaki

A Japanese comedian will run the marathon for Cambodia at Rio 2016, reports AFP. Kuniaki Takizaki, a television star known for his cat impressions apparently, was granted Cambodian citizenship in 2011 and was barred from London 2012 because he was too recent a citizen. He was given a wildcard nomination for this summer’s Games after winning a marathon in Kep, in a time of two hours and 44 minutes.
