Kenya target more Commonwealth games medals

02 July 2014, 14:31

Nairobi - Kenya will be out to improve its medal haul at the upcoming 20th Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland.

National Olympic Committee of Kenya (Nock) chairman, Kipchoge Keino, said the climate in Scotland is favourable for the team to improve on its medal tally.

“The climate there is good. I competed at the Commonwealth Games in 1970 there and we did our best. We only need to prepare well and bring the glory.”

Dr Kipchoge was speaking at the launch of Commonwealth Games team residential camp at Safaricom Stadium Kasarani on Monday.

The 195-member team, competing in 15 sports disciplines will compete at the games.

Most of the athletes in track events are out of the country for the IAAF Diamond League in Lausanne and Paris meetings while the rugby players are in Madagascar and Mauritius.

Sports Principal Secretary, Patrick Omutia, who presided over the camp launch, asked the athletes to produce the best results.

“Compete as if there is no tomorrow and be patriotic to this nation,” he said.

Stephen Soi, the chief de mission, said his charges would excel.

“The bowling team used to be dominated by Kenyans of European descent, but the trend has changed. “The shooting team will not be staying with the rest of the team in Glasgow,” said Soi.
