Kenya Institute of Special Education (KISE) are the new men's Teachers Training College goalball champions.

The Nairobi Region trainees dominated the games dethroning last year’s winners Mosoriot as this year's championships entered day two yesterday at Eregi.

KISE defeated Mosoriot 12-2 and Asumbi 16-3 to snatch the bragging rights.

However, KISE's women team was unlucky as they lost 4-3 to Asumbi in their opening match. Mosoriot women remain on course to retaining their title following their emphatic 12-5 victory against Asumbi in their opener.

Today they will play KISE and a victory in the match will see them extend their reign in the sport.
