Two-time Olympic 1500 meters champion Faith Kipyegon has challenged Athletics Kenya to provide a smooth transition for the junior women athletes to the senior category.
Speaking during the Athletics Kenya consultative meeting at Eldoret, Kipyegon said the measures for the transition were under-par.
“The 5,000m and 10,000m events have very few female athletes and that’s a big problem for us. We need Athletics Kenya to work on the modalities to help in this transition if the country is to keep its status among the best in the world.” She claimed.
She believes is the right fundamentals towards achieving the above are adhered to, Kenya can be a power house once more in the track.
“We need to have as many athletes as possible to help us flood major championships in the hunt for medals for the country.” She added
