The men’s team also include Uganda’s top performer at the recently concluded Africa Cross Country championships, Moses Kibet, the national half marathon champion Daniel Rotich, Geoffrey Kusuro and Isaac Ayeko. Linet Chebet will be the only female on the team to Copenhagen 2014.

“We have a full team and we expect a good result from them. Most of them were tested at the Africa Cross Country championships and we believe that they have the required endurance,” UAF secretary Beatrice Ayikoru told Ugandan leading daily, New Vision.

The IAAF World Half Marathon Championships event is open to mass participation for the first time.
