Africa Junior Athletics Championships
Dates: June 29
IAAF World Under 18 Championships
Dates: July 12-16
Uganda has named a team for the Africa Junior Championships with one eye on next month's IAAF World Under 18 Championships.
The five member team has one woman, Adha Munguleya, who will compete in the 5000m at the Africa event in Algeria. She was also on Uganda’s junior women team at the IAAF World Cross Country Championships held in Kampala last March.
With the World junior event, barely 22 days away in Nairobi, the Africa competition in Algiers will serve as a good warm up for the young athletes.
Uganda Athletics Federation is yet to announce a team for the World Juniors but it is expected any time before the first week of July. The Nairobi event is the last edition of the World Under 18 Championship as the IAAF turns attention to regional and continental competitions.
Uganda’s team to the Africa Juniors:
5000m: Oscar Chelimo, Jacob Limo
10,000m: Oscar Chelimo, Victor Kiplangat
3000mSC: Albert Chemutai
