Rift valley Primary Schools Sports Association (RAPSSA) chairman Edwin Kiptis is optimistic that term one athletics events will be successful due to preparation they have done ahead of Thursday show.
Speaking to Dailysport.co.ke Kiptis said the championships are the most competitive compared to national because of the number of students and counties involved.
“We are highly prepared for the championships. We have assessed the track and field. We had challenges on water barriers but we have managed to construct the water jumps, we are waiting for it to dry ahead of Thursday action,” said Kiptis.
He added that the championship, which brings together 14 counties in Rift Valley, is more competitive than nationals.
“The teams that will win here just know that they will win at the nationals. We have been dominating nationals and we will continue doing so because of the competitive nature of our sports,” added Kiptis who doubles up as the Uasin Gishu Primary school head teacher.
“If you can manage to watch Rift valley championships, then you have watched nationals. In fact these are more competitive that is why we are using three days in athletics which is not like other regions,” said kiptis at the venue for the championships.
