Team Kenya out to reclaim African title in Nigeria
Head coach Stephen Mwaniki has backed Team Kenya to bag the overall title during this year’s Africa Championships in Asaba, Nigeria.
Mwaniki said the squad has demonstrated high confidence in camp and his athletes have the right motivation to deliver Kenya’s first continental title since 2010.
“We have trained very well and improved our weak areas. The discipline in the team and the motivation is really high; this is the team that will bring glory to this country.
“Our duty is to go out and show that Kenya is still the continent’s athletics powerhouse,” Mwaniki said.
The top two athletes in each discipline at the August 1-5 showpiece will earn the right to represent the continent at the IAAF Continental Cup in Ostrava, the Czech Republic from September 18-19.
Team Kenya will depart the country on July 30 for Nigeria where they will seek to replicate their 2010 heroics when the competition was hosted in the capital Nairobi.
