Kenya Broadcasting Corporation (KBC) has secured exclusive Free to Air Rights (FTA) for the 31st Olympic Games, scheduled for 26th July to 11th August this year in Paris France.

During the games, Kenyans will enjoy nine hours of the selected events daily on TV and live broadcast across all the FM stations.

Kenya will be sending athletes in six disciplines, including rugby 7’s men, women volleyball, fencing, judo, swimming and athletics.

The games will get underway on 24th of this month, with football and rugby sevens men group matches, before the opening ceremony set for 26th.

10,500 athletes will compete over 21 days of the Olympic Games.

329 events will be contested  across  32 sports disciplines, including four newcomers: surfing, sport climbing, breaking, and skateboarding.

The four disciplines are new, although some of them have taken part in previous editions as exhibition sports.

KBC will televise both the opening and closing ceremonies as well as all the disciplines.
