Pamela Jelimo Mark II?

Starting tomorrow, is the IAAF World Indoor Athletics Championships in Istanbul, Turkey. Ordinarily Kenya doesn’t send a particularly strong contingent for indoor games, what with their normally being other events in the calendar being considered bigger priorities (see the London 2012 Olympics this time round for example). However, this time round Athletics Kenya have given a slot to one of Kenya’s 6 gold medallists from the last Olympics in Beijing. Pamela Jelimo will be part of Kenya’s contingent of 6? at this year’s indoor event. Since becoming Kenya’s first ever woman olympic gold medallist, things have not good well for Pamela. A number of injuries and coaching changes meant that not many see her as a favourite to defend her crown. Nonetheless, it seems her first sub 2:00 time in long while is proof enough for the honchos at Athletics Kenya to give her a spot in the Istanbul team. Best of luck to her and the rest of our team.
