Catherine Moya, a student at the Technical University of Kenya, has been selected to work as a translator at the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris. She is studying for a Diploma in International Relations at the university, located in Nairobi.

Additionally, new talents like Alexander Munyao, Timothy Kiplagat, Vincent Ngetich, and Benson Kipruto will join forces with Kipchoge to represent Kenya.

The event is scheduled to take place from July 26 to August 11.
