Kenya hopes training background will help

KENYAN athletes are hoping all their training at the high altitude would pay off in the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast, Australia.

“The athletes are looking forward to the games and they are in high spirits for the competition,” athletics manager Joseph Ochieng said at the Brisbane airport.

“We are fortunate that the athletes were able to train well for the competition,” Ochieng said.

“We have got a fastest team who travelled in five different groups for the Commonwealth Games.

“We are fully prepared for the competition.”

Team Kenya brought 65 athletes to the competition.

“We are ready to win,” he said.

“Kenya is an upcoming country and we have friendly people.

“We have areas where the long- distance athletes can train at the high altitude which can help them.”

The official opening will take place on Wednesday at the Carrara Stadium in Gold Coast, Australia.
