Over 150 Kenya elite athletes are set to benefit during a three-day Athletics Kenya (AK) Conference at the Safari Park Hotel, starting Thursday this week.
The conference will mainly focus on athletes’ career transition in the field of investments, finance management, health, social life and anti-doping.
The organising committee chairman, David Miano, said the conference is mandatory for all the invited athletes. “Even though the calendar has already started, it’s very important for all the runners who have plans in 2019,” said Miano.
Miano said that the Conference will replace the annual Athletics Kenya Golden Gala. “We have opted for the conference since we have had to deal with too many negative cases and it’s important to have our athletes back in class in a bid to light their way,” explained Miano.
Miano said that they have realised that the big elephant in the house is not doping but other vices that have ruined athletes’ lives like bad
management of resources and alcoholism.
He said the conference will feature key topics and it is important that all those invited attend so that they can plan their season properly.
