Following the Kenya Olympic trials held on Saturday at Nairobi's Nyayo National Stadium below is the full named by Athletics Kenya.

The men's relay team of 4 by 400m and some selected sprinters will be looking to qualify during the African Athletics Championships in Porto Novo, Benin from June 27-July 1.

The team that has been selected moved to the Moi International Sports Centre, Kasarani under Head Coach Julius Kirwa where they are expected to stay before departing for London in late July, if National Olympics Committee of Kenya agrees to shelve the pre-planned Bristol camp.

NOCK will launch the olympic camp, Sunday 24.

Both Athletics Kenya and the runners feel the scheduled three-week training in Bristol could affect the team after their intensive and successful high altitude preparations.
