Okoth, who turns 37 next week, last competed in the Olympics in Beijing in 2008.
Okoth will face Zambian Everisto Mulenga in the final on Friday evening.
Drawing inspiration from his wife Rachel, Okoth said: “My wife told me never to get tired because she knew the sacrifices that we had both made for me to stay in good shape.
“She told me that I had come from far, and that the journey was about to end.”
The only other Kenyans taking part in the qualifiers were Elizabeth Akinyi and Elly Ajowi, but both crashed out of the competition on Wednesday.
