Kenyan volleyball team upbeat


National women volleyball team coach David Lung’aho has maintained the bulk of his regular squad to do duty during the ultimate stage of the FIVB World Championship qualifiers. The competition involving hosts Kenya, Uganda, Seychelles, Tunisia, Senegal, Mozambique and Cape Verde kicks off at the Kasarani gymnasium on Sunday with a match between Kenya and Uganda on the cards. The top team at the end of the competition, which will be played on a round-robin basis, will qualify for the World Championship in Poland in September.

We are not taking any of the teams for granted, although we know very little about the likes of Seychelles and Cape Verde. But going by ranking, we expect Tunisia and Senegal to be the biggest threat to our chances of securing qualification,” Lungaho said. “The team is in good shape and they have also trained for a longer period compared to the men’s team. They have never disappointed us and we are certain they will deliver again,” Kenya Volleyball Federation (KVF) first Vice Chairman Evans Nyaberi said. Nyaberi has also confirmed that entrance will be free to all fans wishing to follow the matches. Kenya is seeking to qualify for the World Championship for the sixth consecutive time.
