On day two of the games, Kenyan Ian Kahinga won gold in the 1500 meters men’s race, making it the second gold for team Kenya in the competitions.

“In other countries, they start their sports development at a tender age. In our case, most of our players started playing when they were adults,” the Kenyan women football team coach, Ben Bella, stated while explaining the difference between Kenya and the other teams.
"We had eight players who were left behind, they would have made a very big difference. Most of them were young and did not have the relevant documents."
