Africa Youth Games champion Maria Brunlenher and Danilo Rosafio will lead the Kenya team to this year’s World Swimming Championships to be held from July 12-28 in Gwangju, South Korea.

Brunlenher claimed two gold medals at the 2018 Youth Africa Games, will have Danilo Rosafio, Emily Muteti and Isa Abdalla accompanying her to South Korea for the week-long event.

“I hope it will help me improve my personal times and get to the respective finals of their races,” said Abdalla in Nairobi on Sunday. Brunlehner is based in Germany while Muteti is in the United States.

Head coach Fakry Mansoor will be assisted by Steve Schaefer and Todd Price. Mansoor hopes Kenya swimmers will learn more from the trip.

“We have to focus on the Tokyo Olympics and select best talent. The World Championships may be the first for some, but it is a good opportunity for them to learn and improve their times,” said Mansoor.
