NAIROBI, Kenya, Jul 03 – After a rigoruous three-day trial period, Athletics Kenya has selected a team of 34 athletes ahead of the World Under-20 Championship which will be held at the Moi Sports Centre Kasarani in August.

AK named a team of 24 men and 19 women as Kenya looks to successfully defend the title they won in Tampere, Finland, three years ago.

“We have selected a very strong team and we are confident that we have what it takes to successfully defend the title. We have had a great event at the trials and this has given us an opportunity to see what we need to do in the competition in terms of technical and organization,” Athletics Kenya Head of Youth development Barnaba Korir said after the trials.

The team is expected to report to training on July 15 while they will enter a bubble camp at the Moi Sports Centre Kasarani once the team to the Olympics leaves.
