Sprint Race: World's Fastest Woman Ta Lou In Kenya For SOYA
1/10/2019
Cote d'ivoire's Marie-Jose Ta Lou, currently the world's top-ranked female sprinter, is in Mombasa, Kenya where she will be chief guest at Friday's Safaricom Sports Personality of the Year (SOYA) Gala.

The sprinter, who ran four of the 10 fastest times in the world last year, said she was happy to be in Kenya and to help promote African athletics which she treasures.

She said at the Moi International Airport in Mombasa where she was received by Mombasa County sports executive Kyalo Munywoki and chief sports officer Rajab Babu.

I'm very happy to be in Kenya for the second time now, although it my first time to be in Mombasa where I look forward to enjoying the beaches among other recreational facilities.

It's a good opportunity to see more of the country as I did not have the opportunity in 2010.

Ta Lou also said she hopes to start her training in Mombasa ahead of the indoor season where she will compete in the 60-metre dash before going outdoors in a calendar that will climax in the IAAF World Championships in Doha, Qatar, in September and October.
