What you need to know:

  • Otieno is happy with the pre-Olympics training camp idea, saying his experience in Kurume could provide the game changer.
  • “I’d like to thank the government and Olympic committee for organising this camp.
  • “To acclimatise ahead of a major competition is something good. In fact that’s what most top athletes do – they don’t train at home, but look for good pre-season training camps.”
