      Couldn't find a results link, but I came across a Facebook page that shows live and recorded action.

        Thanks, but isn't that kinda sad that Kenya is such a world power and we have no access to its Oly Trials results?

          Not much but something; looks like there might be some streaming at the right time... https://www.france24.com/en/live-new...olympic-trials

                I just saw they listed the team on their (Athletics Kenya) Twitter feed.

                  If this works...here's the thread. Cheruiyot not making the 1500m is a big deal and that includes how the race will probably be run.

                            the wild card concept exists only for the WC, not the OG.

                            Kenyan team will be Michael Saruni, Ferguson Rotich, Emmanuel Korir

                              Are there any results links besides Twitter or Facebook?
