British envoy pays visit to Kenyan Commonwealth team

03 July 2014, 14:10

Nairobi - Team Kenya was graced with a visit from the British High Commissioner ahead of the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

Christian Turner sang the praises of the Kenyan team, saying that he expects them to do well.  

“Team Kenya has fantastic athletes and I expect them to do better than the previous Commonwealth Games in New Delhi where they collected 12 medals,” said Turner.

“I’m excited about the performance of rugby sevens team because they have put Kenya on the world stage with their great displays in the IRB Series.”

Turner was visiting the Biometric Visa Clinic in Nairobi and insited that he had to visit the team before their departure.  

“Instead of Team Kenya coming to our offices, we’ve brought our offices to them,” he said.

Meanwhile, for the first time in history, Kenya is sending four athletes to participate in the triathlon event.  

“I started triathlon this year and I want to believe that I have a lot to learn,” revealed Jess de Boer.

“I have been involved in other sports like hockey, swimming, kite surfing, cycling and biking and the experience I gained from these disciplines will definitely come in handy at Glasgow.”
