Kenya’s six-man walking team will only take part in the Africa Championships and not the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland.
Team manager Paul Mutwii, said the athletes are aware they will only grace the Africa Cham- pionships as the walk is not on the Club Games calendar. “The walk will not be in the programme of the Common- wealth Games and the athletes in the walk already know that they will only take part in the Africa Championships” added Mutwii.
The team is led by MEDAL PROSPECT: Grace Wanjiru competes in past 20km walk. Africa champion Grace Wan- jiru, Emily Ngii in the women’s category while the evergreen David Kimutai, Samuel Ireri, and Sylvanus Wekesa will form the men’s squad. Four-time Africa champion Grace Wanjiru said she will focus on the defence of her African title.
