The only non-track and field Kenyan athlete yet to compete at this Olympics is female boxer Elizabeth Andiego. Andiego's moment comes Sunday when she takes on middleweight opponent, Khazakstan's
Volnova Marina, in the 75kg category inside the Excel Centre's Northern Wing.
"People have almost forgotten her, but she is keeping well and studying fights here in great detail," Patrick 'Mont' Waweru told FeverPitch.
"She apparently had a food poisoning, but our doctors worked hard and in consultation with the Village Polyclinic, treated her and she is very fit," Peter Angwenyi, Team Kenya Media Liaison, told FeverPitch
The only other boxer, Benson Gicharu, was eliminated on Monday by Egyptian Abdulahi Asham in the 52kg category, much to the chagrin of
the public who thought the popular Kenyan had an upper hand.
Swimming brothers Jason and David Dunford were eliminated. Weight lifter Mercy Obiero also joined the other Kenyans on the terraces to cheer up the athletes.
