    Athletes from the North Rift have asked the Government for protection from people claiming they sponsored violence.

    Retired, current and budding runners on Friday gathered at Kipchoge Keino Stadium in Eldoret to protest at victimisation.

    The athletes said they had received emails threatening top runners from the region.

    “These stories are worrying and it is very sad that athletes are not being allowed to train when we have the World Cross Country championship and the Olympic games coming,” said Kipchoge Keino, chairman of the National Olympic Committee of Kenya.
