NAIROBI， Aug. 22 (Xinhua) -- Olympic 400m hurdles silver medalist Boniface Tumuti Mucheru of Kenya is on a mission to prove his achievement in Rio Games was no fluke.
Mucheru， who will be making his second quest in the Diamond League meetings， will compete in the 400m hurdles at Lausanne， Switzerland on Thursday and has put aside his celebration ceremony to focus on winning the race.
"I will celebrate later，" said the Africa champion. "At the moment， it is crucial to win in Switzerland and then head home."
Until last year， Mucheru was not known. He won in his heat to qualify for the finals of the 400m hurdles but faded to seventh. He recorded a new personal best time of 48.79， which was a second better than his past best mark.

"My fan club， my family and many people from my region will come and cheer for me，" she said. "It will be very emotional."
Her teammate Lea Sprunger missed out on the 400m hurdles Olympic final， but in Lausanne she will face the three medalists from Rio: Dalilah Muhammad of the USA， Sara Slott Petersen of Denmark and USA's Ashley Spencer.
The men's 110m hurdles will also be a highlight as the top four from the Olympics have been confirmed with Omar McLeod， Orlando Ortega， Dimitri Bascou and Pascal Martinot-Lagarde all set to compete.
