Too out as Owino names provisional squads
The 2019 All Africa Games beach volleyball silver medalist Naomi Too has been sidelined for the Africa Olympic qualifiers Round One set for between January 8 and 13 in Dar-es-Salaam, Tanzania. Too is the second beach volleyball player to pick a serious injury in two months after Gladys Wangui fractured her right leg tibia bone in training. However, head coach Patrick Owino said Too is ruled out of for the Dar-es-Salaam competitions as she will be going under the knife to correct the damages in her knee. In preparations for the qualification, national team Owino has assembled provisional teams of six players in the women’s team and a seven-man squad in the men's category. The men’s provisional squad drew Prisons’ veteran Ibrahim Oduor, Donald Mchete (Mombasa), General Service Unit’s Cornelius Kiplagat and Brian Melly, Kenya Ports Authority duo of Jimmy Mwaniki and Enock Omogeni and Oman-based veteran Evans Bera.
