  • Description

    A major year-end track meet in Nairobi on Saturday (28 December) served as a tune-up for Kenya's contingent to January's inaugural New Zealand Games.

    Kenya, generally recognised as Africa's leading track nation, is one of only two black African countries invited to participate in the New Zealand Games at Christchurch. The other is Tanzania -- but Kenya's 16-member team will be much the larger. Other leading track nations scheduled to compete at Christchurch include Australia, Canada, Finland, Japan and Sweden.

    The Kenya Amateur Athletics Association used Saturday's meet -- held at the Langata Armed Forces Stadium -- to select its candidates for Christchurch. The meet was sponsored by a British-based tea firm.

    The New Zealand Games, to be held at Queen Elizabeth II Park Stadium in Christchurch, will run from January 23 to 26.
