The fifth Mombasa Open Tong Il Moo Do has attracted 26 countries for the event set for September. Kenya Tong Il Moo Do Federation President Clarence Mwakio said the mixed martial arts tournament, earlier scheduled for April, had to be moved to September to enable more foreign teams confirm participation.

“The tournament has been gaining momentum yearly and we are happy Ministry of Sports has supported it,” said Mwakio.

The tournament is set for September 17-26 at Aga Khan Academy. Last year, Team Kenya emerged victorious after beating 12 nations in contention. [Ernest Ndunda]
