Biography

Mathieu Kiplagat Sawe (born 2 July 1988) is a Kenyan track and field athlete who competes in the high jump. He holds a personal best of 2.25 m (7 ft 412 in), which is the Kenyan record for the event.

He reached international level in 2012 and competed in two events at the African Championships. He fared poorly in the 800 metres but reached the high jump podium with a jump of 2.15 m (7 ft 012 in), taking the bronze medal. In 2014 he competed at the 2014 African Championships in Athletics and 2014 Commonwealth Games without reaching the podium.

His breakthrough came in 2015, when he won the 2015 national trials with a national record height. A jump of 2.21 m (7 ft 3 in) brought him the gold at the 2016 African Championships in Athletics. This made him the first Kenyan to win that title.
