Gaudencia Makokha and Naomie Too gave Kenya bronze in Beach Volleyball

NAIROBI, Kenya, June 23 – Kenya’s Beach volleyball pair of Gaudencia Makokha and Naomie Too won bronze at the inaugural Africa Beach Games in Sal, Cape Verde as Kenya finished the competition with three medals.

Kenya bagged bronze after beating hosts Cape Verde by straight sets of 21-6, 21-11 to add on Kenya’s medals after winning silver in the men’s half marathon and the men’s tennis team.

With the teams evenly matched at 2-2 in the first set, it soon went south for the hosts who fell to 8-3, then 11-3 before the first technical time out.
