A delegation from National Olympic Committee of Kenya (NOC-K) and Athletics Kenya (AK) this week handed Javelin star Julius Yego Sh900,000 to aid him in his training ahead of the global showpiece in August.
The cash given to Yego is from the International Olympic Committee Solidarity Scholarship.
Yego expressed his gratitude for being considered among the athletes receiving individual scholarships and said he will develop a programme with his coach to improve hid training.
“Thank you NOC-K for considering me for this scholarship. I promise, I will seriously train to win a medal at the Olympic games,” he said.
