African Youth Games

The Kenya team to the African Youth Games in Botswana – May 22-31 2014 in Gaborone included athletes, golf and badminton, a Sevens Rugby team and an under-18 national girls’ volleyball team. The first edition of the African Youth Games was held in Rabat, Morocco, in July 2010 and attracted 1,000 athletes from 41 countries taking part in 16 disciplines. In Gaborone 2014, 2,500 athletes attended in 20 disciplines. The games are for teenage athletes between 14-18 years.

Kenya (athletics), girls:

–    Maureen Thomas (200m)

The Kenya Sevens boys’ Under-18 team took the silver medal at the Africa Youth Games, the gap in strength between them and South Africa in the final proving too big. South Africa routed the Kenyan boys 60-0.

Earlier Kenya had won all their matches including; Zimbabwe 17-12 in the semi-finals and, Madagascar 24-0 in the pool games where the Kenyan boys had also lost 0-33 to South Africa.

Kenya Academy of Sports:

In January 2015, the Government launched the Kenya Academy of Sports to be hosted at the Moi International Sports Centre. Cabinet Secretary Dr Hassan Wario said that, as outlined in the Sports Act 2013, the academy’s activities will include recruitment of soccer and volleyball talent in partnership with stakeholders. The minister said the academy would launch more programmes so that talented sportsmen and women could horn their skills while pursuing an academic programme.

National Anti-Doping Agency

The Government also launched the National Anti-Doping Agency chaired by James Waweru, a former Provincial Commissioner of Nairobi and Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Youth and Sport. The local agency would work under the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) to build the infrastructure in the fight against doping in Kenya sport. The agency will conduct research, education and other anti-doping related activities.

Tennis

Kevin Cheruiyot and Ismael Changawa, both aged below 18 years are making Kenya proud in tennis.

Tennis Kenya has had to introduce home tuition to enable these teenagers keep up with their academic work. Ismael has changed his life after he was scouted from Coast region.

In the next four years, Tennis Kenya is planning to find sports scholarships in Kenyan universities and colleges to enable best players study and play.

Kevin Cheruiyot – currently the top 18 and Under player, has been entered in five tournaments in southern Africa this year, now playing in Futures in Egypt, where he is expected to gain match experience playing with seniors before heading back home for the finals of the ITF circuit in Nairobi starting November 15. Tennis Kenya helped enter him to these tournaments through junior development programme.  He could qualify to get ITF travel grants to assist him play more tournaments.

Ismael Changawa – was selected to ITF Centre South Africa in 2012 and ITF centre Morocco in 2013/14. Won Kenya Open in 2014 and 2015, won a silver and bronze medals in singles and doubles respectively at the 2014 Africa Youth Games, currently under scholarship at Seminole State College in Oklahoma.

Stephanie Mbaya – 17-year-old, currently best Under 18 girl won a silver medal for Kenya at the 2014 Africa Youth Games.

Angela Nyangweso – 11-year-old who is the top player in Under-16 category. Has won every national tournament she has entered this year. She was selected to join the ITF Centre Burundi in 2014 where she currently trains. Ryan Randiek – 13 year old, currently best Under-14, trains with ITF Centre Burundi, got to the quarterfinals of AJC this year, recently performed his best beating older centre players in the ongoing Elite series.

Football

The youthful long-serving Kariobangi Sharks chairman Nick Mwendwa is the new president of the Football Kenya Federation.

Mwendwa, 37, an Information and Technology specialist polled 50 votes to beat Nairobi lawyer and Gor Mahia chairman Ambrose Rachier, who got 27 votes during the national elections at the Safaricom Indoor Arena, Kasarani.

Ssemi Aina got no vote so too did outgoing chairman Sam Nyamweya, who stepped down only hours before voting.

Nick’s running mate Petra Doris was elected vice-president in a re-run after garnering 53 votes against Dan Shikanda who managed just one vote while Andrew Amukowa got none.

An elated Mwendwa announced: “I had said for long that we would win this and we did it today. We now have a new federation and the aim is to begin with youth football, get the national team to prepare adequately for the next game and also change the people’s attitude on the game.”

Rachier conceded: “I must accept the results. It was a clean and transparent exercise here on the floor but what I can complain about is the bribery of delegates. With the level of poverty in this country, it is hard for a delegate to turn down a Sh150,000 bribe. Some of my delegates asked me to let them go eat the money and come back and it seemed they never came back. I do not have proof but have word that it happened. Now I’ll work with the new chairman.”

Mwendwa’s running mate, Doris Petra, triumphed with 36 votes to beat Andrew Amukowa on 21 and Dan Shikanda with 13.

They however they had to wait for a run off as none reached the 50 per cent threshold.

Mwendwa’s victory was achieved through a well-organised campaign based on backroom lobbying, elaborate networking and financial muscle.

David Gikaria, the Nakuru East MP, who is also in Mwendwa’s Team Change, was elected the federation’s national executive member of Rift Valley with a landslide 42 votes ahead of closest challenger Kipchumba Joe Birgen who had 24.

Others were—Moses Kamalik, Geoffrey Kiptanui (four each), Bernard Shitiabayi (2), while Letting Isaac got no vote.

NEW NEC MEMBERS

David Gikaria (Rift Valley), Nabea Timothy (Eastern), Raphael Mwalungo (Coast), Kimani David Njoroge (Central), Enos Kweya (Western), Mohamed Mula Mohamed (North Eastern), Joseph Andere Oduol (Nyanza) and Chris Amimo (Nairobi).

Athletics

World Athletics Championship:

2015 was a memorable year for Kenyan athletics. The country was crowned the world’s top athletics nation during the International Amateur Athletic Federation [IAAF] World Championships in Beijing, China held between August 22-30.

Kenya’s athletic prowess came on top of mercurial rivals Jamaica, USA and Britain. After nine days of competition, the tally had put Kenya top with seven Gold medals, six silver and three bronze medals. But how audacious; the country’s own expectation was up to 10 gold medals and rued missing top place in both the men’s and women’s marathon, considered a pre-games sure bet.

Among the surprise Gold medalists was Vivian Cheruiyot, winner of the women’s 10,000m after two years away from competition on maternity leave. Then there was the thrilling victory for unheralded Nicholas Bett, who became Kenya’s first ever winner of the men’s 400m hurdles at this level.

Julius Yego’s gigantic javelin throw confirmed his stellar rise in just a few years with a first ever world championship for Kenya outside the running track or road.

Kenya’s king of track David Rudisha put the icing on the cake with a brilliant come-back from two year of injury by winning gold in the men’s 800m where he holds the world record of 1:40.01.

A 1-2-3-4 sweep of the men’s steeplechase confirmed winner Ezekiel Kemboi’s legendary status and complete domination of the race by Kenyans. The Beijing feat meant Kenyan athletes avoid looking ahead to maintain their reputation at the Olympic Games to take place within just a year, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil [August 5-21, 2016].

Kenya at 2015 AFRICA GAMES

Brazzaville, Congo, September 3-19:

A Kenya men’s 4x400m’s relay team lit up the stadium with a golden act on closing night of the 11th African Games in Brazzaville, Congo on September 18.

Throughout the Games, where Ethiopia and Eritrea, ruled long distance running, the most determined Kenyan track men and women were in the sprints and middle distance, mostly outdoing themselves to reach finals and make history like Eunice Kadogo, the women’s 100m silver medallist.

The sprinters and middle distance runners were Kenya’s most exciting athletes in Brazzaville. The track and field closure was a gold medal win in the men’s relay, Raymond Kibet, Alex Sampao, Kiprono Koskei and Boniface Mweresa running down star-studded Botswana (with Nijel Amos), Algeria and Nigeria teams.

The Kenyan quartet sent the Olympic Stadium of Unity into delirium and wiped the bitter pill the Kenyans had to swallow earlier as Ethiopia and Eritrea dominated the morning and afternoon programme. Ethiopia ran away with the women’s 21km half marathon title, the men’s 5,000m and the women’s 1,500m.

PARALYMPIC SPORT

 

IAAF WORLD JUNIOR CHAMPIONSHIPS:

(Oregon, USA, July 2014):

Just when gold medals were proving elusive at the 15th IAAF World Junior Championships, Margaret Nyairera Wambui, the 18-year-old Form Three student at Nyeri’s Tetu High School opened the floodgates by winning the girls’ 800m.

Kapkuto Secondary School dropout Jonathan Sawe from Kapsabet took up the cue from Wambui to take gold in the boys’ 1,500m. The victories effectively opened the door for Kenya’s gold rush. They also took Kenya to the top of the medal standings after three days of competition at the University of Oregon with eight medals; two gold, two Silver and four bronze. Few believed that, prior to Oregon, Wambui had run just one 800m race — at the Kenyan Junior trials. She started out as a 400m runner while representing her Tetu High School (Nyeri County) volleyball team at national level.

 

Kenya medalists:

(Boys):

800m: Gold – Alfred Keter; Silver – Joshua Tiampati Masikonde

1,5000m: Gold – Jonathan Kiplimo Sawe; Bronze – Hillary Cheruiyot Ngetich

5,000m: Bronze – Moses Letoiye

10,000m: Silver – Elvis Kipchoge Cheboi; Bronze – Nicholas Mboroto Kosimbei

3,000m steeplechase: Gold – Barnabas Kipyego; Silver – Titus Kipruto Kibiego; Bronze – Evans Rutto Chemator

(Girls):

800m: Gold – Margaret Nyairera Wambui

3,000m:  Silver – Lillian Kasait Rengeruk; Bronze – Valentina Chepkwemoi Mateiko

1,5000m: Bronze – Sheila Chepngetich Keter

5,000m:  Bronze – Agnes Jebet Tirop

3,000m steeplechase: Silver – Rosefline Chepngetich; Bronze – Daisy Jepkemei

Total: 4 – Gold; 5 – Silver; 7 – Bronze = 16

 

COMMONWEALTH GAMES:

(July 23 – August 3, 2014, Glasgow, Scotland):

Kenya had a 195-member strong contingent in Scotland. The bulk comprised, as usual, athletes in track and field. But the Kenya Sevens Rugby team was in focus in terms great expectation and even medal hopes.

For the first time at the Games a trio of brothers were taking part in the Sevens rugby – Humphrey Kayange, Collins Injera and Michael Agevi all Mwamba RFC were in national colours.

 

Kenya Sevens Rugby results in Glasgow:

–    Kenya 28-0 Cook Islands

–    Kenya 35-5 Trinidad and Tobago

–    South Africa 20-0 Kenya

Quarterfinals:

New Zealand 19-7 Kenya

Plate semi-final:

Kenya 5-28 Wales

Swimming:

Kenya went into the games with realistic hopes of medals. Swimming star Jason Dunford was the defending gold medallist in the 50m butterfly from the previous Games in New Delhi, India. However, early in the competition, Dunford saw his medal hopes go up in smoke after finishing ninth (24.03secs) in the semi-finals. Dunford had posted 23.25 to take the gold in India four years earlier.

Other swimmers who braved the stiff competition in  include Rebecca Kamau, Talisa Lanoe, Daniella Awori and Anita Field.

 

2015 XIth All Africa Games:

September 3-19, Brazzaville, Congo

THE then Organisation of African Unity (OAU) launched Pan-African Games, which took place for the first time in Brazzaville, Congo, in 1965. They were to be a platform for mostly newly-independent African states to showcase their sporting talent as well as build solidarity.

Many countries were still under colonial rule and the meeting at the Games rallied Africans to support the call for independence for the rest of the continent. The All Africa Games, therefore, always had a flavour of political activism.

The OAU formed the Supreme Council of Sport in Africa (SCSA), which organized the games, and affiliated nations were expected to finance the games.

Between September 3-19 of 2015, Brazzaville was destined to be the fitting venue for the Pan-African Games 50th anniversary. Although the re-brand had not caught on, the games are now referred to as “The African Games” of the organisation that long changed into simply the “African Union” [AU].

Kenya, independent in 1963 and outstanding participants in the inaugural games would return to Brazzaville with nostalgia in 2015. On the 1965 medal standings, Kenya placed third behind United Arab Republic [Egypt] and populous Nigeria. The question in most Kenyans minds as “Brazzaville II” approached was whether surviving sporting legends Wilson Kiprugut Chumo and Benjamin Kogo would accompany the present day youth to the important anniversary. Chumo and Kogo were Gold medal winners in 1965.

Another living legend, the great Kipchoge Keino who won the 1,500m and 5,000m track Golds in Brazzaville ’65, would almost certainly be on the plane. As chief of the National Olympic Committee of Kenya [NOCK], Keino would have the ticket to Brazzaville for a ceremonial role.

There was huge expectation that Kenya would be very well prepared to do better at the 11th edition than in what was perceived to have been a fantastic performance in the inaugural Pan-Africa Games in 1965; Kenya won 23 medals, including eight (8) Gold, 11 Silver and four (4) Bronze, coming overall third behind Egypt and Nigeria.

It was no surprise that Kip Keino’s name was on everyone’s lips who perhaps could not recall that in 1965, Keino was not the only Kenyan two-Gold hero in Brazzaville. Wilson Kiprugut Chumo won the rare men’s 400m and 800m Gold double, equaling Keino’s feat in the 1,500m and 5,000m. How nice it would have been if Kiprugut would earn a place in the plane, accompanying Keino to live the nostalgia in those two weeks of 2015.

There were other track Golden heroes in Brazzaville including Kimaru Songok (men’s 400m hurdles) and Benjamin Kogo (men’s 3,000m steeplechase) and it would have been befitting to have those still alive to travel.

Other uplifting tales from ’65 included John Owiti’s mercurial performance in the men’s sprints, taking silver behind Gaoussou Kone of Cote d’Ivoire in the 100m and Cheruon Kiptalam grabbing silver after coming second in the men’s javelin.

There was huge success in men’s boxing where pioneer Philip Waruinge came home with the featherweight gold leading a team of prominent fighters such as John Nderu, Sammy Mbugua, John Olulu and Philip Oundo.

Kenyan teams were training under the supervision of their sporting associations and the contingent that was announced earliest was that of athletics, named by Athletics Kenya [AK] when they were also picking the team to August’s World Athletics Championship in Beijing.

Kenyan track and field chiefs decided to send two completely different athletics teams to Beijing and Brazzaville arguing that the two championships were too close to each to allow “doubling up”.

But Brazzaville was clearly more historic than Beijing. Elite athletes went to Beijing but it was in Congo where the emerging talent bloomed. There would be other disciplines including women’s volleyball, beach volleyball, swimming and even tennis. Most of Africa would be sending their best to Brazzaville and it would not be a holiday jaunt for the Kenyans.

Where Kenyans were unable to find a slot in Brazzaville, having fared poorly in the qualifiers, pointed at some of the disciplines that the Kenyans had sank to pitiable depths mainly because of poor management.

They included football where Football Kenya Federation [FKF] teams stood no chance. The only team to have had a whiff was the women’s soccer team. But in the last hurdle, they missed out at the expense of Tanzania who would represent the East African region in Brazzaville.
