  • Description

    Kenya's top track stars went into action on Friday (21 May) and Saturday (22 May), competing int eh annual Kenya championships staged at Mombasa's municipal stadium.

    26 Kenyans have already qualified for the Montreal Olympics and athletics officials hoped that by the end of the Mombasa championships, ten more would be added to the list.

    Most notable absentees, almost certain to have qualified at Mombasa, were 5,000 metres performers Erastus Kemei and Henry Rono.

    They were reportedly locked in quarantine in Karachi, for the second time, on their way from China.

    One of the highlights of Friday's heats was the 800 metres in which Army "bat boy" Dan Omwanza turned in a time of one minute 51.2 seconds.
