KRU comments on Olympic postponement, urges locals to follow guidelines

Local Rugby Governing body, Kenya Rugby Union supports the decision taken by the International Olympic Committee to postpone the games to 2021.

The Union through its statement states that the postponement leads to a difficult scenario for both the Kenya 7s and Lionesses who have already qualified and were deep into preparations for the competition. The Union, however, admits it was the right decision at this time of the period when the World is battling with COVID-19.

“The resulting scenario is difficult as both our men’s and women’s teams had qualified in good time and were well into their preparations for the event.  We will, however, have to reshape our calendars as we await further information,”  reads part of the statement.


Kenya Rugby Union Chairman Oduor Gangla on his part has urged local to follow the Government and World Health Organization COVID -19 guidelines.

“We support the IOC’s decision. It is a decision that prioritizes player welfare, fan safety and social responsibility. As a result, our players will continue with their remote training programs.”

“We would also like to take this opportunity to urge the public to continue following the Government and World Health Organization COVID -19 guidelines. “
