Baby name story: Helsinki

This is old news, but I just learned about it for the first time:

In 2005, after winning the 5,000m at the World Athletics Championships, which were held in Finland, Kenyan runner Benjamin Kipkoech Limo renamed his newborn son Helsinki.

The baby, born just 6 days before the race, had previously been known as Tony.

Limo and his wife also have three daughters. I’m not sure what their names are.
