Kenya’s Commonwealth team settle for Bubble Camp.


Kenya’s team to the Commonwealth games has opted to settle and operate in a bubble camp following the spike in Covid- 19 infections as the country experiences a sixth wave.

NOC-K Vice-President Shadrack Maluki has put emphasis on the importance of ensuring safety of the athletes and officials by observing Covid-19 protocols to safeguard the athletes’ health as they prepare for the games.

“From today it’s going to be a bubble camp, no going out, no coming in and there will be no visitors who have no business coming here,” Maluki said.

“We are ensuring athletes are protected because that’s part of the reason we are here, our athletes come first. We thank the government for taking these measures because we all know there are cost implications,” he added.

He further thanked the Government for taking the measures noting that Sports CS Amina Mohammed and PS Joe Okudo have done everything possible to ensure goals and objectives are achieved.

Kenya is expected to send a contingent of 123 athletes to the games that will take place from the 28th July – 8th August 2022 in the United Kingdom.
