“My training programme has not been affected. The only thing that I miss at the moment is group trainings, but working alone has made me re-evaluate and asses my performance am trying to work out on how to improve in some areas that am weak.

My coach at Vihiga Queens Alex Alumira is also following me keenly and giving assistance through online platform and I feel I am making some good progress that will make me an all-around player and remain at the top.

“My desire for all my colleagues who are currently at the break is to encourage them not just to sit down and relax but rather find a place where they can at least train to maintain the good shape.
