Cali 2022: Athletics Kenya names 29 Athletes for World u20 Championships – Athletics Kenya has today named a team of 29 athletes that will represent the country at the World Under-20 Athletics Championships scheduled for August 1 to 6 in Cali, Colombia.

The team naming ceremony was a fitting climax to a two-day national trial staged at the Nyayo National Stadium on Friday and Saturday.

I wholeheartedly wish to appreciate everyone who has made the championship a success led by the AK youth sub-committee members whose input towards the whole exercise has been enormous. We wish our athletes favourable outcome as they start the journey to defend our title at the global showpiece. read more
