Kenya the destination as British athletes step up their training

British athletes are making their way to Kenya as part of their London 2012 Olympics training this month as they look to improve their prospects in this year's competition.Four Scottish endurance athletes will undertake high-altitude training during a month-long trip to the country, returning in early February.The news could also be good for Kenya property investors as it reaffirms its reputation as an excellent place to train for sporting events.Speaking to scotsman.com, Derek Hawkins said that he will be missing lectures at his university to make sure he could head along."We head to London on January 9th and then fly to Kenya the following day," he told the news provider. "It is at altitude and it is my first experience of that."Kenyans may be watching the London 2012 Olympics through digital television after it was announced earlier this week that the country will be switching from analogue this year.
