How AK plans to win elusive 10,000 metres Olympic gold

What you need to know:

  • AK President Jack Tuwei says the federation will identify medal probables and put them in camp as part of the preparations for Tokyo.
  • He said that the athletes who will be selected must undergo the mandatory tests a requirement by the Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) as one way of avoiding the 2019 scenario where athletes who had been selected to compete in the 5,000m were dropped ahead of the World Championships in Doha, Qatar.

Since 1968 when Kenya won a gold medal in the men’s 10,000 metres at the Mexico Olympics Games through Naftali Temu, the best performance over the distance has been silver.
