Kenya collapse at World Relays

03 May 2015, 16:30

Nairobi - Kenya's bid for IAAF World Relays gold got off to a poor start on Sunday when one team was disqualified in the final of their event while another was eliminated in the early heats.

The World Relays not only offers competing teams a dress rehearsal ahead of the World Athletics Championship in Beijing in August, but also qualification for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio for all teams that make the final of their events.

Kenya qualified for the men’s 4x800 metres final and thought they had secured silver, but were subsequently disqualified after it was discovered that the baton exchange between Nicholas Kipkoech and Timothy Kitum took place outside of the changeover zone.

It is not yet know whether they will be awarded Olympic Qualification in spite of the disqualification.

The men’s  4x400m team was then eliminated in the first round after finishing fifth in a time of 3:05.96.
