Three times Kenya Open champion Christopher Saina from General Service Unit (GSU) turned on style to win the Deputy Inspector General Kenya Police Service Trophy at Kenya Defence Forces Laikipia Range on Saturday.

Saina brought an accumulative round of 507.47 from both short and long range to claim the overall title, leaving teammates Sanford Otundo battling to take Super X 1 Class on 503.34.

Otundo edged out beating Simon Ndambuki also from GSU to Super X 2 on 484.27.

Saina, who had downed 248.30 from short range, carded 287.17 from long range made of 69.3 from 800m followed by 57.8 at 900m. He then claimed another 96.8 in his second round at 800m to close with 64.7 at 900m for victory.

“The course is extremely windy, making it difficult to focus well,” said Saina. “Experience counts a lot at such conditions," Saina said.

Otundo who had 246.25 at short range, returned 2597.9 at long range that comprised 69.3 and 57.2 at 800m and 900m respectively. He then went for 71.2 and 60.2 over the same distances in the second round to win Super X Class.
