Kenya Shooting Themselves In The Foot?
“You have seen we don’t have the likes of [Eunice] Sum or [Janeth] Jepkosgei in this team because we decided to include only those who took part in our series. We shall do the same for the World Championships and we are telling every athlete and their agents that they have to take part in at least two local events to be invited for Trials.”
“Kenya has a big wealth of talent and we cannot fail to find athletes to take to international competition. We cannot have people waiting to be added to the team because they are champions. We will take this largely unknown team and they will perform.”
– Athletics Kenya president Isaiah Kiplagat talking about how Kenya’s top two 800 runners won’t be going to the World Relay Championships because they did not compete in domestic meets during the regular season. Team USA thanks you, Mr. Kiplagat.
