About the Team
Kenya qualified for Rio de Janeiro by winning the 2015 Rugby Africa Men’s Championship. They finished the 2015/16 HSBC World Sevens Series in 7th up from 13th the previous year.
“It’s a tough pool but we are also a good side,” head coach Benjamin Ayimba said while speaking to Capital Sport. “We will be facing teams that we have played before in the World Series so we will give it our best and continue raising our country’s flag high as we have always done.”
The goal is to advance from group play and Ayimba’s side will attempt to do so with confidence after defeating New Zealand earlier this season.
