Kipkeino Classic postponed

World Athletics has postponed the Kip Keino Classic Continental Tour to be hosted at the Nyayo National stadium for a week.

Today, the athletics body rescheduled the event that was to be held on September 26th, moved to October 3 at the same venue.

The changes are as a result of a change in the Diamond League 2020 calendar, which has seen Doha Diamond League brought forward by two weeks. 

This means Doha will now take place on September 25 instead of the initial date of October 9 after it failed to take place as the traditional season opener in April.

The Nairobi leg of the World Continental Tour was named KipKeino Classic in honour of the most decorated Kenyan athlete of all time Kipchoge Keino.
