  • Abel Kipsang, who was fourth in 1,500m during the 2020 Olympic Games, said that he was forced to change his training base to Kapcherop in Elgeyo Marakwet due to lack of good tracks in the region.
  • “The federation has done a good thing to visit the young upcoming athletes and our main problem is a good track which is essential in training. This region has good athletes but we have moved to various places because we don’t have a place to train. 

Athletes training in Kaptama and Kapsokwony in Mount Elgon in Bungoma County have urged the county government to finish the construction of Kaptama High Altitude Training Camp.
