Kenya will enter 22 sports disciplines out of 26 sports during the forthcoming 12th edition of All Africa Games set for between August 16 and 31 in Morocco.
The disciplines that will field teams in the event include athletics, archery, badminton, basketball , boxing, canoe, kayak, rowing, chess, cycling, handball, judo, karate, shooting, swimming, table tennis, tennis, triathlon, indoor volleyball, beach volleyball, weight lifting and wrestling.
Team Kenya comprises a contingent of 290 competitors and technical personnel who have reported to residential camps at the Moi International Sports Centre, Kasarani and other training venues in the outskirts of Nairobi together with 86 training partners and are confident for the African Games.
The performance of Kenya seems to be depreciating whereby in the last AAG in Brazzaville, Congo, Kenya earned a total of 32 medals inc 6 gold,9 silver and 17 bronze medals as compared to the 10th AAG in Maputo, Mozambique in 2011 where Kenya went home with 50 Medals.
Despite the downward swing in medal graph, Team Kenya executive officer Charles Nyaberi exuded confidence that the squad will post exemplary performance in Morocco.
