The country’s sole kite board surfing entry Nzioka to do battle on the freezing Atlantic Ocean today

With silver and bronze in the bag, Kenya's hunt for the elusive gold medal shifts to football, volleyball and surfing as the inaugural Africa Beach Games enter Day Six in Sal, Cape Verde, on Wednesday.

Kenya bagged a silver through half marathon runner Charles Yosei Mneria, and bronze from the men’s beach tennis duo of Fazal Mohammed Khan and Kibet Yego.

Today, Kenya’s sole kite board surfing entry, John Koyiet Nzioka, will attack the freezing Atlantic Ocean after having been forced to hire training equipment to finalize his training on Monday.

Unlike the Indian Ocean’s not-too-cold waters on which he has been training in Mombasa, Nzioka has been battling to get familiar with the Atlantic Ocean water that’s currently freezing cold.

“It is not as cold as I thought, I can manage in it,” he put on a brave face after yesterday’s final rounds of training. “There is no big difference between the two as long as you are on the water. The moment you fall then there is a problem, because you don’t want to freeze,” said Nzioka who will compete in the regatta.
