Sylvia Chelangat and Elkanah Kiprotich will anchor the nation’s bid for sprint jewels when World Under 20 Championships gets underway inside Kenya’s biggest sporting cathedral – Kasarani Stadium on August 17-22.
Chelangat said: “I’m happy to have won and I really thank God. It was competitive and though I started with a lot of tension but I made it. I need to work on my speed and balancing training and school has been a tricky affair but I thank my mentor Janeth Jepkosgei for the support.”
She is a Form Four at Lelu High School in Kericho.
Kiprotich said: “For now, I will concentrate on 100m to make it. I train in Ngong. Let us hope for the best at the world under 20 Championships.”
