Things went haywire when travel plans for the third batch of Team Kenya to the Rio 2016 Olympics had to be delayed. This was after athletes boycotted boarding the flight in protest of , Julius Yego’s missing ticket to Brazil. Julius was shocked after finding out he had no ticket to travel to the games, even after being so vocal over the poor treatment of athletes in the country. National Olympics Committee of Kenya (Nock) officials couldn’t produce the ticket either leading to the unwarranted protest.
After some negotiations Yego was allowed to board a flight to Luanda without a ticket as further arrangements were made to rectify the grave situation. Commenting on his Facebook page, Yego expressed his shock and disappointment on what had happened. He also called out some rogue officials whom he believes are a major disappointment to the Kenyan people and the government.
We hope this mishap will not affect the team’s performance in any way.
