Kenya at the 2011 World Championships in Athletics
|Kenya at the
2011 World Championships in Athletics
|National federation||Athletics Kenya|
Only a sprinkle of new faces made the provisional Daegu roster that is fronted by three Olympic champions (Asbel Kiprop, Brimin Kipruto, and Nancy Langat) and all the four gold winners (Abel Kirui, Ezekiel Kemboi, Vivian Cheruiyot, and Linet Masai) the country minted in Berlin two years ago.
Among the fresh names will be unheralded Hellen Obiri who caused the biggest upsets of the day when she scorched Olympic champion, Nancy Jebet Lagat at the homestretch in the women’s 1500m. No field athlete made the Kenyan World Championships squad.
