Sports in Kenya

Kenya is a major sporting nation, especially in middle and long – distance running. No athletics event in the world is complete without Kenya’s participation and its legendary athletes are the darling of the world

Kenya is truly a sporting giant and  it has done well in many games – athletics, rugby, volleyball, hockey and even football.

In athletics, it is the King and Queen of middle and long distance. The black, green and red colours stand out during and at the finish of any race, starting from the 800m all the way to the 10,000m, the marathon and cross-country. In the 3,000m steeplechase, Kenyan athletes have never looked back since the 1968 Mexico Olympic Games when the country clinched a gold medal.

In cricket and hockey, Kenya has been a world-beater, at sometime playing in the same league as the greats of the game India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, England and Canada.
