It is the Kenyan women’s national volleyball team that will represent Africa at the Tokyo Olympic Games in this year 2020. The team obtained its ticket at the end of a qualifying tournament organized in Yaoundé and bringing together the five best African teams which are Egypt, Botswana, Nigeria, Cameroon and Kenya.
For their last match in the competition, Kenya had to overcome Nigeria to qualify. And it is without trembling that the teammates of Sharon CHUMBA marched on their adversaries by 3 sets to 0. According to their coach Paul BITOK, the team of Kenya is however that which had the worst preparation. « It was very difficult for us, because we have not prepared ourselves well. We have not had international friendlies, because of the end of the season in Kenya, « he said.
The plenipotentiaries of the African continent at the Tokyo Olympics offered the public of Yaoundé a choreography worthy of well-prepared training. After 16 years of absence from the Olympic Games, Kenya will once again represent the African continent in women’s volleyball.
