Medalist decries inadequate training facilities

By KBC Reporter

Javelin gold medalist at the IPC athletics championships Neli Sile says lack of proper training facilities has hampered Kenyan athletes from conquering the world at international events.

Sile who was speaking when he received the triumphant Kenyan team from Dubai on Monday afternoon said this has mostly affected athletes with disabilities.

Fourteen athletes left the country for Dubai and managed to secure a total of 15 medals at the IPC Athletics championships.

Despite the challenges faced by the athletes, team Kenya secured four gold medals won by Samwel Muchai, who won two, Henry Nzungi and Neli Sile.

The team Kenya also bagged seven silver medals won by Wilson Bii, Nelly Nasimiyu, Stephen Musyoki, Jonathan Sum, Henry Nzungi and Hannah Ngendo.

The medals were sealed with yet another four bronze medals collected by Egla Mosop, Gilbert Langat and Hannah Ngendo.

The triumphant team now sets their eyes on the Paralympic Games set for August this year in Rio Brazil.
