NAIROBI (Xinhua) --
Kenya will enter only three boys and three girls
in the third edition of the Africa Youth Games, which will be
held from July 18-27 in Algiers, Algeria.
A team of 12 players
have moved to camp in their final preparations for the games as
table tennis seeks to rival athletics in medal haul at the
games, which are held after every four years.
Kenya Table Tennis
Association (KTTA) Fixtures Secretary Micheal Kuria said they
have the best 12 athletes and only half of them will make the
cut to travel to Algiers in July.
Kuria said he
anticipate Kenya players to develop and dominate the sport like
their colleagues from China.
“The players have
been following the training of their coaches who are also their
teachers. This is to ensure that their education is not
disrupted. We are waiting for more details to know when and
where they’ll be camping. This information can only come from
the National Olympic Committee of Kenya,” Kuria said.
