Eleven runners for 2014 Commonwealth Games

Rwanda Athletics Federation has selected eleven athletes in different categories to represent the country at the 20th Commonwealth Games scheduled for July 23 to August 3 in Glasgow, Scotland.

Sprint runners will not be represented on the team because none of them managed to attain the minimum required times, according to the federation technical director, Jean Pierre Ndacyayisenga.

“The eleven selected runners have already started individual preparations and training from different places and we hope they will represent the country well,” the officials told Times Sport.

He noted that the federation is confident the selected athletes can do a good job in Glasgow.

The Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games are set to attract over 6,500 athletes and officials from 71 nations and territories competing in 17 sports disciplines during the 11-day world class event.
