THE INSPIRATION BEHIND OUR LOGO

 

16 July  2017 in Nairobi the IAAF (now World Athletics) World U18 championship came to a close in the capital of Kenya. It was clear that after hosting a successful championship, Kenya had proved its ability to host a major athletics competition. The five-day global showpiece saw a record attendance of 60,000 spectators at the championship in each of the final two days.

 

This was the highest number of spectators ever recorded in a World U18 athletics championship.

 

The electric atmosphere at Kasarani set a perfect stage for the new track and field stars to show what they have to offer to the sport in the years to come. After the commendable  World U18 Championship, Kenya expressed an interest to host the World U20 championship this year. After a successful bid, Kenya was announced as the host of the World U20 athletics championship that will be held in Nairobi at the Moi International Sports Centre, Kasarani.

 

From 17th to 22nd August this year,  the championship will be hosted in Kenya, a country that prides its self with a vibrant athletics history and a population that loves track and field events.

 

Karibuni Nairobi Kenya!!
