Uganda 7s in Kapchorwa for Olympic Repechage camp

Uganda Rugby 7s are on a seven-day training camp in Kapchorwa in Eastern Uganda in preparation for the Tokyo Olympics Repechage Tournament.

The 2019 African Men’s 7s finalists kicked off their camp on 3 January and it is set to run till 10 January after which they will return to Kampala.  They are having three sessions a day which include gameplay and hill-running in the high altitude region.

Kapchorwa was chosen due to its high altitudes. Uganda finished second in the Olympic Qualifiers following a 31-0 loss to Kenya 7s and have a final chance to battle for a ticket to the Olympics in mid 2021.

The side will travel to Monaco in June for the Repechage slated for 19-20 June 2021. Uganda will join Brazil, Chile, China, France, Hong Kong, Ireland, Jamaica, Mexico, Samoa, Tonga and Zimbabwe who will be seeking to win the remaining single ticket to the Olympics.

The women’s competition will feature Argentina, Colombia, France, Hong Kong, Jamaica, Kazakhstan, Madagascar, Mexico, Papua New Guinea, Russia, Samoa and Tunisia.
