ADVENTURES IN AFRICA
Jambo from Nairobi, Kenya! (Hello in Swahili.)
ITU is currently in Kenya leading a sport development programme covering basic information in coaching, athlete development, and grassroots event management.
The entire week in Kenya has been made possible thanks to a generous donation from “Justice for Athletes”.
Day 2 introduced participants to many, new Triathlon skills and the concept of integrating FUN into training.
Amidst a mirage of posters, presentations, laughter, and learning was a solid passion for this sport and the future…. despite formidable challenges.
Each participant outlined a 5-step action plan that they want to implement in their area.
The group will consolidate these plans by the end of the week into a larger vision for Kenya and Africa.
The agenda for the remainder of the week includes programme planning, Triathlon technical skills, youth development and a mini Triathlon on Nov. 19.
