"We are aware that there is a lot of interest from coaches and agents who all want their athletes to be picked," he said.
Kiplagat said they had considered performance of the athletes over a period of time and that many people were involved in the process to make it credible.
David Leting’, who will handle the team in training, said they will begin preparations after three weeks in either Iten or Eldoret.
"We have given the athletes three weeks to recover after running in London and then we will begin preparations. We are confident that this is enough time to get in the right frame of mind to win in London," he said.
Leting said they have enough time to study the course and prepare the athletes for it.
