Julius YegoThe Kenyan Team will be composed by only 48 athletes, but they will conquer an high position in the medal table thanks to their mittle and long distance runners.

There is only one exception: the javelin trower Julius Yego. It’s strange for Kenya to have an athelete who doesn’t run, but Yego is the current World Leader; his SB is 91.39m.

There are a lot of opportunity to win a medal: beginning from the tree times World and Olympic champion  Ezekiel Kemboi (3000st), to the current World Champions  Asbel Kiprop (1500m), Eunice Sum (800m) and Edna Kiplagat (marathon). And even the Marathon’s World Record Holder Dennis Kimetto and 800’s World Record Holder David Rudisha.

In the Kenian Team there are also a lot of World Leaders like: Wilson Kipsang (marathon), Geoffrey Kamworor and Paul Tanui (10000m), Jairus Birech, Conseslus Kipruto, Hyvin Jepkemoi and Virginia Nyambura (3000st).
