Leading the Kenyan charges are two exceptional athletes, Jully Musangi ranked 53rd globally, and Faith Ogallo, holding the 50th rank in the world.

Over the next three weeks, the formidable athletes will engage in rigorous training on the international stage. Besides the training, Jully and Faith will participate in crucial ranking tournaments across Europe, including Poland and Paris.

Their participation in the tournaments aims to elevate their ranks and bring them closer to securing a coveted spot in the Paris 2024 Olympics.
