Olympic 3000m steeplechase champion Ezekiel Kemboi will be leading a star-studded Kenyan contingent of 37 athletes for the Beijing Marathon.
Others named during the Olympic trials in Nairobi include world marathon champion Catherine Ndereba and the reigning 800m world title holder Janeth Jepkosgei who will showcase with Africa junior champion and rising star Pamela Jelimo. The two coincidentally were born and brought up in one remote Kenyan village.
Osaka world 5000m championship bronze medalist Prisca Jepleting Cherono and the All Africa 3000m steeplechase champion Ruth Bosibori complete the list of stars in the Kenyan squad.
