    Men: Paul Tergat, Eric Wainaina (bronze at Atlanta, silver at Sydney), Sammy Korir

    Alternates: Martin Lel, Rodgers Rop

    Women: Catherine Ndereba, Margaret Okayo, Alice Chelagat

    No alternates named “owing to the limited number of quality women marathoners”

    Little known fact (to some, at least): Even with the number of quality marathoners Kenya has produced, the country has yet to produce an Olympic champion. Wainaina’s second at Sydney was the country’s highest finish. Is this the year that changes?
