Work to start soon on stadium

Plans for the construction of a modern stadium in Eldoret town are still on course. The stadium is to be funded by the Qatar government. Athletics Kenya chairman Isaiah Kiplagat, said the land for the stadium had already been acquired and that construction work would soon start. “There has been a problem with land. We needed to buy an additional quarter acre from a neighbouring farm,” Kiplagat said.

“I am happy to report that the farmer has agreed to surrender the quarter acre and we will soon get the title deed and start work on the tartan tracked stadium .” Kiplagat was speaking during the official opening of a modern gymnasium meant for athletes in Iten town on Sunday. The gymnasium is owned by Kenyan-born Dutch athlete Lornah Kiplagat and her husband, Peter Longerhorst. Also present during the opening ceremony was the Dutch Ambassador to Kenya, Tanya van Gool.
Kiplagat said the Qatar government officials had already taken soil samples from the site for analysis.
Construction of the stadium has been dogged by controversy with a section of Qatari athletes of Kenyan origin insisting t be situated in Keiyo instead. Kiplagat said Eldoret town had been selected due to its central location, which makes it easy for athletes in the Rift Valley to access. The AK boss also revealed that the Sports Stadia Management Board had set aside Sh10 million for the upgrading of Kipchoge Keino Stadium in Eldoret town. He blamed the Eldoret Municipal Council for not providing the required technical information on time for the upgrading work to begin.Kiplagat also told athletes to choose between the World cross-country Championship next April and the Commonwealth Games next March.
