Upstart Jackline Nanjala is counting on her rigorous training as she makes her Team Kenya debut at next week’s Africa Games that will be staged in Accra, Ghana.

competing in the 400m, Nanjala said: “I want to win a medal. (Mary) Moraa will be my main challenger but I still have a chance to make it to the top,” said Nanjala, a former student of Mupere High School in Trans Nzoia County.

She finished eighth in the 400m during last year’s Kip Keino Classic.

Wanjiru, another debutant, promised to deliver a 400m hurdles medal. 

“Hurdling is easy for me. I have been competing for the last three years,” said the 23-year-old.

Wanjiru competed in the 400m hurdles while in school, finishing fourth in the 2018 and 2019 national championships. She wants to improve on her time in Ghana.

“I have 59.32 seconds but want to lower it to at least 58,” she said.
