The University of Alabama’s Director of Athletics since 1999, Mal Moore has made an indelible mark on one of the nation’s most storied athletic programs, leading a department that has enjoyed tremendous success athletically and academically and has undergone an unprecedented period of growth during his tenure. Through his guidance, Alabama’s athletic department remains focused on his vision of having all Crimson Tide athletic teams and student-athletes competitive at the highest level nationally while continuing to elevate athletic facilities at the Capstone to premier status nationally for all sports. During his tenure as Director of Athletics, Moore has overseen more than $200 million of capital improvements to University of Alabama athletic facilities. Those projects have encompassed the entire scope of all Crimson Tide athletic programs and have benefitted every Alabama studentathlete, coach, and administrator. Throughout his multi-faceted career, Moore has worked with a diversified field of constituents, from fellow coaches and former players, to fans and the business community. All of those experiences and relationships - in addition to his ability to unify those many constituents - have made him the ideal person to lead Alabama athletics in the 21st century. His leadership has been crucial in helping guide Alabama through a period that has been, at times, extremely challenging. His guidance and effort helped Alabama athletics weather the storm, while continuing to move in a positive direction toward a future that holds great promise. Moore’s dedication to and love of the University of Alabama was recognized on March 28, 2007, when as a permanent tribute to his life-long contribution to The University of Alabama, the Board of Trust-

ees of The University of Alabama officially dedicated the facility formerly known as The Football Building as the Mal M. Moore Athletic Facility. Under Moore’s direction, Alabama’s athletic teams have produced two national championships, the 2009 football title and the 2002 NCAA gymnastics championship, as well as several Southeastern Conference championships, winning titles in football, gymnastics, men’s basketball, men’s golf, men’s cross country, baseball and softball; taking SEC tournament titles in both baseball and softball. Alabama athletes have earned some of the highest honors the SEC and NCAA have to offer, including SEC Athlete of the Year, SEC Scholar-Athlete of the Year, NCAA Top VIII, NCAA Postgraduate Scholarships and NCAA Sportsperson of the Year. These honors are over and above the individual conference and national titles that Alabama athletes continue to bring home to the Capstone on a regular basis.

During a coaching career that spanned 31 years, Moore spent 22 of those at Alabama with stops at Montana State, Notre Dame and the NFL’s St. Louis and Phoenix Cardinals. At Alabama, Moore started as Coach Bryant’s graduate assistant in 1964, then as defensive backfield coach for five years beginning in 1965 before becoming quarterbacks coach from 1971-82 and serving as the Tide’s first offensive coordinator starting in 1975. He would go on to coordinate all of the offensive plays for Alabama’s last four national championship teams. A 1963 graduate of The University of Alabama, Moore holds both an undergraduate degree in Sociology and a 1964 Master’s Degree in Secondary Education from the Capstone. Moore was born December 19, 1939, in Dozier, Ala. He and the late Mrs. Charlotte Moore have one daughter, Mrs. Steve (Heather) Cook of Scottsdale, Ariz., a granddaughter, Anna Lee, and a grandson, Charles Cannon.

In addition to making his mark on Alabama, Moore has also had a national impact as a key member of several prestigious NCAA and college football committees. Moore has served on the NCAA Division I Football Issues Committee, the SEC Athletic Directors Bowl Advisory Committee and the Big Six Conferences Minority Coaches Forum. Moore’s distinguished record of service to UA began more than 50 years ago when he joined the Crimson Tide football squad as a scholarship player for Coach Paul “Bear” Bryant from 1958-62. Moore has the distinction of being a part of eight national championship teams (1961, 1964, 1965, 1973, 1978, 1979, 1992 and 2009) with the first coming as a player, the next six during his coaching career and the last during his tenure as director of athletics. As a player and coach, he was also part of 14 SEC championships, and 27 bowl trips. He is the only individual connected with the Tide program to be a part of eight national championships.

The University of Alabama men’s track and field team embarks on their 2010 campaign with what is arguably the deepest roster in regards to talent in recent memory under head coach Harvey Glance. Last year, the squad finished 12th in the John McDonnell Program Award, which recognizes the overall programs regarding national rankings in cross country, indoor and outdoor track – only 16 teams in the entire country were eligible for the rankings. Once again, the Crimson Tide is coming off its best cross country season in school history. The cross country squad won their second consecutive SEC Championship, third consecutive South Region title as well as a third straight top-10 finish at the NCAA Championships – their highest in school history, 3rd. “My goal is to be a top 10 program and try to build more consistency across all three seasons,” Glance said. “If you could describe this team, it’s that we not only have good talent, but probably for the first time in my 19 years as a head coach, this is likely the most depth and talent I’ve had on one team. I’m very confident that the kinds of athletes we’ve recruited, and the team that we have in all respective areas will make us a better program. We’ve brought in better talent this year and I really feel good about this team.” The Crimson Tide has added a few rookies to the program that are expected to contribute immediately with some having already made their debut in the fall with the cross country squad. The men will have some new international faces on the sprinting team in the Norgrove twins, Fabian and Kemar, as well as another 4-minute miler in Joel Rop. All three have the ability to be a threat to score at the conference meet. “I think these guys can help the team in the 4x400m tremendously, as well as the distance medley relay and 4x100m,” Glance said. “They are going to be very beneficial to us. Now, we can hopefully have a fresh distance medley relay as opposed to looking around for bodies. Those are some valuable additions to our team.

TRACK AND FIELD

We could easily be a top 10 program, indoor and outdoor again, and possibly challenge for another trophy.” The obvious strength of the team falls on the distance program, which is among the tops in the country, but the only area that Alabama really

lacks in is the throwing events. Due to the limited number of scholarships, the coaching staff has tried to recruit the type of athletes that can be competitive at not only the conference level, but the national level as well. “I think we’re pretty solid,” Glance said. “We’re always falling short,

and we become more of a balanced program. There aren’t going to be a lot of bodies representing one team at the NCAA Championships, whereas in the conference you can put anybody out there. We try to do well at the conference meet, but our main goal is usually at nationals.”

Seniors Tyson David and Emmanuel Bor lead the Tide’s group of distance runners as the All-Americans return for their final season. With only enough eligibility left for one indoor season, the duo will be looking to take Alabama track and field to the next level just as they did for the cross country program. David and Bor are both coming off their best cross country seasons ever and could make some noise on the oval if that success carries over. Other than the already mentioned Joel Rop, newcomers Julius Bor, Moses Kiptoo and Fred Samoei made their presence known during the cross country season. All of them should be able to contribute on the oval as well. Julius Bor has been under 1:50 in the 800 meters and the junior transfer will join his brother Emmanuel on the track in January. Kiptoo is the type of athlete that could be a double-threat to score in both the 5,000 and 10,000 meter races, just as David has been the past two years. As for Samoei, he should be competitive in any event from 800 to 10,000 meters. The squad also returns every member from its All-SEC distance medley relay team from last year so expect them to challenge for the SEC title. “Those guys helped us to our best finish ever in cross country, but should also help us a lot on the track,” Glance said. “All of our distance guys have got some great range and if it’s any indication of what they did in cross country, they should turn out to some very good numbers on the track.”

Returning every sprinter from last season that advanced to the NCAA Championships, the Alabama sprinting squad should excel in 2010 with the newly added talent. The men will have three returners from their region qualifying 4x100m and 4x400m relay teams. Ray Jadusingh, a NCAA qualifier in the 100 meter and 4x100m relay, will lead the group. Jadusingh was also a Mideast Region qualifier in the 200m and 4x400m relay. Aaron Stockstell returns for his sophomore season after being a SEC finalist and regional qualifier at 800 meters, barely missing the NCAA meet by .03 seconds a year ago. Stockstell also turned in some of the best times in school history as a rookie, moving into the top 10 in Alabama history, both indoor and outdoor. Matt Watson is a guy that brings experience to the team. He’s another one of the seniors that has the potential to do great things. Glance signed Kirani James out of Grenada who could turn out to be the biggest signee in Alabama track and field history. James comes to Alabama as arguably the world’s No. 1 youth 400m sprinter. He holds numerous junior records, including the fastest 400m time ever run by a 14, 15 and under-20 sprinter at those respective ages. James is an eight-time champion at the international level including the CARIFTA Games, Pan American Junior Championships and World Youth Championships. “I think Ray Jadusingh, Matt Watson, and Aaron Stockstell will all lead in the sprint area,” Glance said. “They are great leaders by example through their hard work and the good results that come from it. These guys are experienced and know what it takes to be competitive at this level.”

The Crimson Tide will be led in the field events by three high jumpers who have all cleared seven feet during their careers. Returning from last season is Tyler Campbell, a sophomore who finished fourth at the SEC Outdoor Championships as a rookie and ranks as the eighth-best indoor high jumper in school history. All-SEC high jumper Tyler Boswell enters his senior campaign after being conference runner-up in the high jump as a freshman and ranks as the seventh-best outdoor high jumper in school history. After being redshirted last year, freshman Mike Edwards who has cleared 7-feet many times in high school will join the Tide. In the long jump, Alabama is represented by region qualifier Shaun Gaiser who held the ninth-best jump in the SEC during the outdoor season a year ago. “That’s rare for any program to have three 7-footers on the same team so these guys will bring a lot of talent to the table,” Glance said. “Campbell is a guy that expects himself to be at the NCAA Championships this year and Boswell is coming up on his senior year so hopefully both of them will have fine seasons. Mike is a very consistent 7-foot jumper. I’ve never seen him not jump at a regional mark so we’re just real enthused about him.”

It can be expected for Alabama to have a strong presence in the multi-events in 2010 as senior Michael Hughes and sophomore Justin Brady now have a year of experience under their belts. Hughes, once competing in just the pole vault, ranks as the third-best heptathlon performer in school history and was in fourth place during the outdoor decathlon at the SEC Championships before having to withdraw due to injury. Brady was just three points from scoring at the SEC Outdoor Championships in the decathlon where he finished ninth. Tim Grier returns after redshirting last season and after his unattached performance at the 2009 Alabama Relays, he will likely compete in the multi-events as opposed to just the long jump and hurdles. The Tide also added Mobile, Ala. native Quentin Petty to the team. Petty has impressed the staff in the fall and could work his way onto the travelling roster. “Hopefully we can keep those guys healthy and they should be a threat to score indoor and outdoor in the heptathlon and decathlon,” Glance said. “Tim Grier did the decathlon a year ago and defeated both of our guys at the Alabama relays. We believe he could be a NCAA qualifier in that event based off his personal bests, which of course he’ll need to put all that together. Petty is an athlete we’re training in the multi-events right now. He’s been a very surprising athlete in the fall and someone we’ll keep a very close eye on to help this team.”

Former World-class sprinter Harvey Glance, a 16-time All-American, three-time Olympian and 1976 gold medal winner enters his 13th season as the head coach of the men’s track and field team at the University of Alabama. Since Glance has taken over the reins of the men’s program at the Capstone, the Crimson Tide has found themselves ranked among the nation’s best in cross country, indoor track and outdoor track finishing 12th in the inaugural 2008 John McDonnell Program of the Year Standings. Glance turned the Crimson Tide’s track program around in just a short period of time where after just three seasons, he saw 21 of 24 competitors who made the travel roster set personal best times and marks, establish numerous school records and top ten performances. During his 13 seasons at the Capstone he has coached 78 All-Americans, including 15 in the 2002 season. He has also coached 41 SEC Champions, eight NCAA Champions, and his athletes have set 23 new school records. In the spring of 2010, Glance signed Kirani James out of Grenada who could turn out to be the biggest signee in Alabama track and field history. James came to Alabama as arguably the world’s No. 1 youth 400m sprinter. He holds numerous junior records, including the fastest 400m time ever run by a 14, 15 and under-20 sprinter at those respective ages. James is an eight-time champion at the international level including the CARIFTA Games, Pan American Junior Championships and World Youth Championships. Track fans around the world understand the synonymous relationships between track and the name Harvey Glance. When you think of one, the other automatically comes to mind. He is the greatest sprinter in the history of the state of Alabama and his name is forever etched in the record books for being the fastest man in the world. In 1976, he held the world record for the 100 meter dash and in 1978, he held the world record for the 100 yard dash. He still holds the Southeastern Conference record in the 220y dash and 4x100y relay as part of Auburn’s relay team. Glance is also still the coholder of the fastest 100y dash in the SEC. During his collegiate career, he was a NCAA Champion in three events, the 60y, 100m and 200m dashes. As head track coach, Glance feels his most important responsibility to his athletes is to see that they leave the University of Alabama with a diploma. He feels his second most important responsibility is that his athletes leave Alabama as stronger individuals. Glance compares being a head coach to being the father of a large family. “When you are a child, you don’t understand discipline and rules,” said Glance. “As you grow and mature the discipline is appreciated and understood.” In his 18 years of coaching, Glance has tutored athletes to 180 All-American honors. His impressive list includes such stars as Tim Broe, Ron Bramlett, Tyson David, Kenneth Fambro, David Kimani, Cori Loving, Miguel Pate, Jeremy Taylor, Latonel Williams, as well as the Distance Medley Relay and

4x400m relay teams. All have earned All-American honors at the NCAA Championships. The most recent feather in his cap was Broe qualifying for the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, Greece. Broe qualified for the finals in the 5,000m race where he finished 11th. Glance also saw former Crimson Tide All-American Miguel Pate compete at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, China. Glance has coached athletes Bryan Howard, Clark Humphreys, Alabama’s Tim Broe, David Kimani, and Ron Bramlett to NCAA Championship titles in the 55m dash indoors, the pole vault outdoors, the outdoor 3,000m steeplechase, the indoor 3,000m and 5,000m, and the outdoor 110m hurdles, respectively. Overall, Glance has seen his athletes accumulate eight NCAA titles since 2000. During the 1995-96 track season, Glance’s track team earned 14 All-American honors which were the most ever won in one season until he eclipsed that mark in the 2002 season when his athletes accumulated 15 All-American honors. Also in 2002, he led the Tide to its highest national indoor ranking when they finished second. In addition to his great success, Glance has coached highly successful international track programs. In 1994, Glance coached the World Junior Team in Lisbon, Portugal. In the summer of 1997, Glance was the head men’s track coach for Team USA at the World University Games in Sicily, Italy. The team won four gold, five silver, and eight bronze medals. During the summer of 1999, Glance was the head coach of the men’s track team at the Pan American Games in Winnipeg, Canada where the U.S. led in total medals won with 295. The team won five gold, eight silver, and four bronze medals, making it one of the most successful teams in history. He was an assistant coach for Team USA at the 2003 World Championships in Paris, France. Glance coached the 2006 World junior Team in

Beijing before returning to Beijing as an assistant coach for Team USA at the 2008 Olympic Games. His most recent stint came as the head men’s coach for Team USA at the 2009 World Championships in Berlin, Germany. He is currently a member of the Executive Committee for the Alabama Sports Festival, a position he began in 1992. In 1998, Glance was elected to the Board of Directors for the Big Brothers Big Sisters, Boys and Girls Club, and Special Olympics organizations, proving his dedication and willingness to give back to the community. Glance was also selected as the chairman of USA Track and Field’s 100m sprint committee. In 1996, he was inducted into the Alabama Sports Hall of Fame. His list of accolades continued to grow in 2002 when he was named one of the top 100 State of Alabama’s Greatest Athletes of the 20th Century. His rank of 27th was based on his career statistics, level of achievement, competition and longevity. He was also No. 23 on Sports Illustrated’s List of the 50 Greatest Sports Figures from the state of Alabama. The former world record holder in the 100y dash is a native of Phenix City, Ala. On top of his athletic and coaching accolades, Glance was bestowed the most prominent award of all in 2008 – the Congressional Gold Medal of Freedom. The medal is the nation’s highest and most distinguished civilian award. The medal is presented both for singular acts of exceptional service and for lifetime achievement. Before joining the Alabama staff, Glance guided Juliet Campbell while at Auburn to being named the 1993 SEC Female Athlete of the Year. He also coached Auburn’s Craig Hepburn, Samuel Matete, and current assistant coach Victor Houston to Olympic competition.

Former two-time Olympian Victor Houston, a SEC Champion, four-time All-American and NCAA Champion, enters his second season as an assistant coach at the University of Alabama. His areas of expertise are the sprints, hurdles, field events, and multi-events. In Houston’s first year with the Crimson Tide, he coached Michael Hughes and Justin Brady to the third and sixth best marks in the heptathlon in school history. Houston helped immediately with the improvement of javelin throwers Trevor Denkers and Chris Lenart. He coached the duo to the fifth and seventh best throws in school history, respectively. Houston coached true freshman high jumper Tyler Campbell to a fifth place finish at the SEC Indoor Championships and a tie for fourth at the outdoor conference meet. Campbell cleared a personal best 7-0 1/2 indoors for the eighth best jump in school history. Before joining the Alabama staff, Houston enjoyed four successful years as the assistant women’s track coach at the University of Iowa where he coached 40 Hawkeye field event and sprint competitors that scored at the Big Ten Conference Championships, 14 All-Big Ten top three finishers, four Big Ten Champions, seven All-Americans, sent 13 out of 19 qualifiers to the NCAA Championships and saw his athletes set 19 school records. Iowa also sent 17 field event and sprint student-athletes to the NCAA Midwest Regional. In 2008, he took over coaching the hurdles, where he guided Tiffany Johnson to Iowa’s first 100 meter hurdles title at the regional meet. Johnson broke her own school record in that event and became the first Hawkeye to win consecutive titles at the Drake Relays. Houston coached Renee White to becoming the first triple jumper in Iowa school history to leap over 42 feet. White held the school record and was the 2008 Big Ten Champion indoors and outdoors in an event she never competed in before competing at Iowa. Tammilee Kerr, a heptathlete for the Hawkeyes, saw huge improvements under Houston, moving from a personal best in the javelin of 141-10 to 165-7 3/4. In the multi-events, Kerr broke the school records in the pentathlon and heptathlon with scores of 3,974 and 5,633, respectively, to earn All-American honors.

SNAPSHOTS Victor and his wife, Andree.

In his third year with the Hawkeyes, Houston guided the largest group of field event competitors in Iowa school history to the NCAA Midwest Region Championships. He guided Peaches Roach to her fourth All-American honor and fifth Big Ten title in the high jump. In Houston’s first two seasons at Iowa, he mentored three student-athletes to various school records. Johnson would continue to set and break her own school record in the indoor and outdoor triple jump, while advancing to the Region Championships in both seasons. Houston would coach Roach to the outdoor school record in the high jump (6-1 1/2), including two consecutive All-American honors in the indoor high jump. In the weight throw, Houston led Becca Franklin to enormous numbers while she set a new standard in the event by breaking the former school record by over 20 feet. All three would go on to become fixtures at the Midwest Region Championships. Victor Houston joined the Hawkeyes after a three-year stint as assistant coach at the University of Texas-El Paso from Oct. 2001 to Aug. ‘04. He served as jumps coach, while overseeing the

multi-event athletes and short hurdlers for the men and women’s track teams. In three seasons with the Miners, Houston coached four All-Americans, nine NCAA qualifiers, four NCAA All-Region performers, five WAC Champions and 70 All-WAC performers. Three-time All-American, Henderson Dottin, and All-American, Desiree Crichlow, set the men and women’s Barbados national high jump record, respectively, while under his tutelagee. Under Houston, Dottin leaped a career-best mark of 7-3 1/2, while Crichlow’s cleared a height of 6-2, setting school records. In addition, Crichlow notched a mark of 43-7 in the triple jump. Houston coached All-American Adrian Ghioroaie in the triple jump as well as Andy Champman, a 5-9 student-athlete who cleared a height of 7-0 1/2 in the high jump and pole vaulted 15-7.

SNAPSHOTS Alabama won its second-consecutive SEC Cross Country Championship in 2009 under the direction of Walker.

Entering his 10th season as an assistant coach and the primary distance coach for The University of Alabama men’s track and field team, Joe Walker has brought the Tide distance program to national prominence with three consecutive top-10 finishes at the NCAA Cross Country Championships in the last three years. He has coached the Tide to six NCAA Regional Championships in 2000, ‘01, ‘05, ’07, ’08 and ‘09 as well as two runner-up finishes at the 2002 and ‘06 NCAA Regional Championships. His most prolific athlete, the late David Kimani, won back-to-back-to-back Southeastern Conference Cross Country Championships while winning three consecutive NCAA Regional championships. Kimani won the 1999 NCAA Cross Country Championship, finished fourth at the 2000 NCAA Cross Country Championships and placed 11th at the 2002 NCAA Cross Country Championships. “Joe is a proven coach with valuable experience as an assistant and head coach,” head track and field coach Harvey Glance said. “He has developed many successful athletes. In addition, Joe is a tremendous recruiter.” Under his direction, the Alabama cross country and distance programs have grown by leaps and bounds. Since his arrival at the Capstone, he has coached four SEC Male Cross-Country Athletes of the Year, 21 SEC Champions, three NCAA Cross Country Regional Champions, three National Champions, 21 All-Americans and 37 All-South

Region performers. He has been named 2001, ’08 and ‘09 SEC Men’s Cross Country Coach of the Year and the 2000, ‘01, ’07, ‘08 and ‘09 NCAA South Region Cross Country Coach of the Year. In 2009, he coached the Alabama cross-country team to the school’s best finish ever at the NCAA Championships with a third place finish. Arguably Walker’s best signee since Kimani came in the spring of 2008 when he added threetime JUCO National Champion and eight-time JUCO All-American Tyson David. In just two years, he has coached David to four All-American honors including the indoor and outdoor 5,000m in 2009. David has also claimed four individual SEC Championships in the indoor 5,000m and outdoor 10,000m. David is the current holder of the school and SEC record in the 10,000m. In 2009, David was also the 5,000m Mideast Region Champion and earned his first cross country All-American award. Walker coached the Alabama men’s cross country team to its two best years ever in 2008 and 2009. The Crimson Tide won the program’s first SEC Title since 1973 in 2008 and repeated the feat in 2009. Walker led the 2008 team that ended Arkansas’ streak of 34 straight (17 SWC, 17 SEC) conference titles. Walker has guided Alabama to seven South Region titles in the past 10 years, including five straight. The Crimson Tide finished the 2009 season with a third place finish at the NCAA

Championships. The team has compiled three consecutive top-10 NCAA finishes for the first time in school history from 2007-09. Walker joined the Crimson Tide following a twoyear stint as an assistant coach at South Alabama. While at USA, he guided athletes to NCAA individual titles in cross country and indoor track. Walker also helped lead the Jaguars to several Sun Belt team titles. Prior to his tenure at South Alabama, Walker served as the head coach for the men and women’s track and field teams at Meridian (Miss.) Community College. During his stay at MCC, he guided the team to national championships in cross country and indoor track and field. Twice named National Indoor Championship Coach of the Meet, Walker coached 16 individual national champions and 74 All-American performers while at Meridian Community College. A 1994 graduate of the University of Mississippi, Walker was a four-time Academic All-SEC performer for the Rebels. He was a member of Ole Miss’ world ranked 4x1500m squad in 1994 and finished his career with the third-best 3,000m time in Ole Miss history. He is married to Carol Ann Walker and they are the parents of Joseph Kai Walker who was born on July 18, 2002 and Maia Malin Walker who was born on Sept. 17, 2005.

ALABAMA


David Kimani was born on February 20, 1978, in Nairobi, Kenya. Days before signing a shoe contract, David died of unknown causes on April 17, 2003. Kimani was considered by most to be the greatest distance runner in Alabama track and field history. He started his collegiate career at The University of South Alabama before choosing to join current cross country coach Joe Walker at The University of Alabama. Kimani had completed all of his degree requirements needed to graduate and his wife, Chamis, accepted his degree in Commerce and Business. David Kimani was as unselfish as they come, sending scholarship money back home to help support his family and even forgoing meals to do so. “David was that story we can relate with,” Coach Walker said. “Where most people can’t dream or can’t find any hope, he somehow was able to come from that environment and was on track to find success in life.” David certainly had a bright future in the sport of cross country and track and field and was considered by many a future Olympic hopeful. He defeated Irish Olympian Alistair Cragg multiple times as well as American Olympian Daniel Lincoln, both of whom ran at The University of Arkansas. Kimani helped lead the Crimson Tide to its best finish at the 2002 NCAA Indoor Championships where the team placed second. Kimani was the type of athlete that could get a crowd on his side. “On two separate occasions, David was knocked down in the opening stages of a race and was able to get back up and win the title,” Walker recalls. ”It was something that the people who witnessed it will always remember.” These two races were the mile and 1,500 meter races at the 2001 SEC Indoor Championships and 2002 SEC Outdoor Championships, respectively. Kimani, a six-time National Champion and 14time All-American, now oversees the Sam Bailey Track Stadium with a memorial to his legacy. “David was a guy that had a dream and a belief in himself,” Walker said. “To see him on the path to achieving success was exciting.” David Kimani is survived by his wife, Chamis, his parents, John Murage and Gladys Wanjiku, his brother, and two sisters.
