Celestine Masinde For Rio 2016 Qualifiers


Celestine Masinde’s clubmate Doreen Remour who featured during the side’s last outing at the Women’s Sevens World Series qualifier in August misses out on the South African trip due to personal committments and her place is taken up by Laventer Oguta as Head Coach Mike Shamiah kept faith in the other eleven who clinched the bowl in Dublin.

Addressing the media in Nairobi on Wednesday, Shamiah observed that the team had prepared well, adding, ” We are not underestimating our opposition and handle the qualifiers a game at a time.”

The squad, captained by Catherine Abilla, leaves the country on Thursday evening.
