Rabar says stadium will be ready within schedule
There is no cause for alarm as Kasarani Stadium will be ready within schedule, World Under-20 Local Organizing Committee CEO Myke Rabar has said.
His remarks come barely a few days before a high powered team from World Athletics comes to inspect the facility ahead of World Under-20 Athletics Championships set for July 7-12.
Rabar said Kasarani, which will host the five-day contest, will be ready on time.
It hosted World Under-18 Athletics Championships in 2017, where more than 60,000 fans attended.
“There is a huge task ahead. The renovations that the stadium underwent ahead of 2017 World Under-18 are still intact and needs minor repairs. The tartan track is in good condition and doesn’t need a new one,” said Rabar.
A team from Monaco will visit the stadium for the third time having toured it in 2019 and two-three weeks ago when a group of doctors visited Kenyatta University -the Athletes Village.
World Athletics’ doctors inspected the medical centre at Kenyatta University and conducted a workshop to 17 medics in preparation for the competition. It comprised Kenyans and seven from other countries. World Athletics medical top brass leads the team.
