David Dunford will be the second Kenyan to take part in the 30th Olympic Games, which started on Friday with a jaw-dropping opening ceremony.
David, the younger of the Dunford swimming brothers, takes part in the 100m freestyle heats inside the Aquatics Centre this morning.
Depending on his performance, the semi-finals will be held later today and the final tomorrow.
He returns to the pool on Thursday morning for the 50m freestyle, the same time his elder brother and stand-in captain Jason will dip into the pool to begin his much-anticipated medal hunt in the 100m butterfly.
David Ngugi, swimming team manager, reported confidence coming from the Kenyans. Jason caused some curiosity, especially among Kenyans in the Diaspora, when he strutted into the Olympic stadium carrying the Kenyan flag at Friday night's opening ceremony.
"Who is that white boy carrying Kenyan flag?" asked a curious observer. Well, in the absence of overall captain, world 800 m champions and record holder, David Rudisha and his assistant Pamela Jelimo, Team Kenya selected the athlete with equal experience and excellence.
Moreover, Jason was in his second Olympics and thus fitted the bill, the team management reasoned.
Ngugi said the swimmers are completely ready for the assignment and are not running scared of any big names from Australia, South Africa and America.
"I don't want to talk much for now, but I think we are prepared and fully ready for the task ahead," said Ngugi.
