Team Kenya has been advised to focus on the Olympic Games if they want to achieve positive results in London.
Sports Minister Doctor Paul Otuoma said coaches and managers should not expose selected athletes to other assignments that may make them loose focus ahead of the games.
“ Olympic Games are the ultimate sports activity and winning here is an ultimate goal of very athlete around the world,” Otuoma said.
Otuoma was speaking during the launch of Team Kenya camp at the Moi International Sports Centre, Kasarani, on Sunday.
The camp was opened a day after the National Trials at the Nyayo National Stadium on Saturday.
“Kenyans become nervous when they see athletes selected for Olympics participate in other events.
“Let’s sacrifice and avoid such assignments for three to four weeks because as a country all our hopes rest on you,” said Otuoma.
The 2012 London Olympics has 26 disciplines on its programme.
The Minister encouraged Team Kenya to compete to the best of their ability despite going to participate in only three disciplines namely: Athletics, boxing and swimming.
“Team Kenya should be proud of being part on Olympics and should be ready to represent the best humanity can offer,” said Otuoma.
