World U20 Trials: Battle for sprint medals starts off

ATHLETICS By Jonathan Komen | July 3rd 2021
Sylvia Chelangat (203) [Athletics Kenya]

Sylvia Chelangat and Elkanah Kiprotich will anchor the nation's bid for sprint jewels when World Under 20 Championships gets underway inside Kenya's biggest sporting cathedral - Kasarani Stadium on August 17-22.

Chelangat said: "I'm happy to have won and I really thank God. It was competitive and though I started with a lot of tension but I made it. I need to work on my speed and balancing training and school has been a tricky affair but I thank my mentor Janeth Jepkosgei for the support."

She is a Form Four at Lelu High School in Kericho.

Kiprotich said: "For now, I will concentrate on 100m to make it. I train in Ngong. Let us hope for the best at the world under 20 Championships."
