Uganda Olympic Committee president William Blick has warned athletes not to vanish in China where they will take part in the Youth Olympic Games starting Saturday.


Blick made the plea while bidding farewell to the team ahead of the Games that will end on August 28.

Blick said, “Do not attempt to vanish like the three athletes at the recent Commonwealth Games in Scotland.”

The team in China has runners Steven Mande, Geoffrey Balimumiti and Janat Chemusto and badminton player Daniel Mihigo.

Constance Mbambu is entered in rowing while Florence Seera will battle for table tennis honours.
