Kenya: Malkia Strikers Set for Morocco Camp Ahead of Continental Campaign in Cameroon

Nairobi — The national women's volleyball team, Malkia Strikers, will undergo a residential training camp in Morocco ahead of the Federation of International Volleyball (FIVB) Challenger Cup in France as well as the Africa Nations Volleyball Championships in Cameroon.

The residential camp marks a return to action for the women's team after their exploits at last September's World Championships in Poland and the Netherlands.

The volleyball queens bowed out at the group stage although they made history with their first win at the global showpiece, dismissing continental champions Cameroon in straight sets of 25-20, 27-25 and 25-18.

In Cameroon, Malkia will face a tall order against the defending champions who will be out for revenge and keen on preserving the title they won against the Kenyans at the last edition in Kigali, Rwanda in 2021.

Coach Paul Bitok on Wednesday afternoon named a 20-player provisional team that will be part of the Morocco camp as well as spearheading the continental campaign.
