06 January 2016, 19:04
Nairobi - World javelin champion, also known as the 'YouTube' man, Joseph Yego has
confirmed that he will indeed be training in South Africa as he
prepares himself for the Rio 2016 Olympics.
Yego added that although he is the world champion he still has to
train hard just like everybody else and will be looking for top honours
at the Games.
"I will train there and then head to Europe for some competition. But
I have to talk with my coach to know which events to take part in the
Diamond League," he told Xinhua.
"It will feel great to feel the texture of the medal in Rio. If it is gold then it will be even better.
"There are some other athletes eyeing the same and it will be tough and that is why I have started training early.
"I will be selective on where to compete in a bid to reserve my energy for the Olympics."
