Kenya in the Olympics

I want to join everyone in congratulating the Kenyan athletes for a tremendous performance…the marathon gold was the icing on the cake.

And then I’m going to rain on the parade by asking why the hell there were more officials than athletes in the Kenyan contigent that went to Beijing? According to the Nation:

A total of 57 athletes travelled to Beijing under AK’s David Okeyo, who was the chief de mission. He led about 60 officials — 22 being technical while the rest were part of the management and government delegation.

Apparently some of the “officials” included the Sports Minister’s kids.

Like M, I’d like to know who the joyriders are…
