Stakeholders at the just concluded sports symposium in Naivasha resolved to set up a new task force which will be charged with the onerous task of spearheading Kenya's medal hunt at the next 2016 Olympic Games in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil.
Speaking during the closing ceremony, sports commissioner, said the new team will lay down strategies aimed at taking the Rio preparations to the next level.
The new team, dubbed "Rio 2016 Think Tank" will be constituted in due course and is expected to meet federations on March 14 in Nairobi to map out strategies for the games headed for South America.
The symposium, which brought together several stakeholders, resolved that members of the Think Tank be decided by the Sports Ministry and the NOCK. The Think Tank will for the time being come up with guidelines that will help Team Kenya improve on their dismal London Olympics performance, where Kenya won 11 medals (two gold, four silver and five bronze medals).
