Said Pandoo after the course: “At the end of the course I must say that the coaches learnt a lot and will be able to correctly demonstrate the techniques and also have the ability to teach the techniques correctly.
“Close monitoring will be kept in the form of quarterly feedback from the coaches and the association as to the development of the game in Kenya.
“In a meeting, the Olympic Committee President of Kenya, athletics legend Dr. Kipchoge Keino gave me his word that he will do his best to keep the support towards the development of the weightlifting in Kenya.”
