Embu, Kenya – Athletics Kenya has announced a final squad of 27 athletes for the IAAF World Cross Country Championships, Mombasa, Kenya (24 March).
Notably, the men's senior line-up is minus former World 5000m champion Eliud Kipchoge whose state of health has been far from perfect since suffering stomach stitches during the final trials race on 24 February 2007. His absence means that Simon Arusei Hosea, 10th in Fukuoka, and Hosea Macharinyang, sixth, are the only survivors of the World Cross Country men's senior team that went to Fukuoka last year.
World Championships 10,000 metres bronze medallist Moses Mosop and this season's new find Gideon Ngatuny will be seen as the new pillars of the men's senior team which will be going for its 20th team title.
