Yucky food, bad weather for Kenyan girls in Japan!
The African champions have been here since Thursday as part of an early preparation schedule ahead of the 2015 FIVB World Cup which begins on Friday with a match against Cuba.
The contingent has however had to contend with meals mostly consisting of raw vegetables, rice and boiled soup and black tea, a diet most of the players don’t prefer.
“This is not what we are used to, and our hope is this will not affect our performance on the court,” the team libero Elizabeth Wanyama said.
Kenya’s team manager Kenneth Tonui has however remained optimistic that the diet factor will not affect the team’s performances.
“I have decided to purchase extra bread and milk for the ladies and urged them to concentrate more on the task that brought here which is winning matches. We came here earlier to adapt to such situations,” Tonui told Nairobi News.
Besides the food, the team has also had to adapt to searing heat during their training sessions with temptations ranging between 30 and 34 degrees Celsius.
