Nairobi - London marathon champions Emmanuel Mutai and Mary Keitany and world record holder Patrick Makau head a 12-member provisional Kenyan team named on Tuesday for this summer's London Olympics.
Others include the 2011 Boston and New York winner Geofrey Mutai and the reigning men's and women's world champions, Abel Kirui and Edna Kiplagat.
Athletics Kenya chairman Isaiah Kiplagat said choosing the team out of the 150 men and 50 women who have attained the Olympic marathon mark was not easy, but the six men and six women were selected based on their rankings, consistency and world championship status.
