Malawi Olympic Committee (MOC) has called 34 athletes into camp in preparation for the All Africa Games and Cape Verde Games.
The 34 athletes are from judo, athletics, archery and table tennis and have camped at MOC Olympia Africa Village in Lilongwe.
Speaking in an interview on Wednesday, MOC technical officer James Mangani said the first phase of the residential training began on May 9.
“The camp has been running for two weeks from May 9 and will break for elections and they will be called again for the last phase.
“After the second phase, the team will leave for Cape Verde for the first games and then later in August for Rabat for the All Africa Games.
“We expect to read some fruits this time which is why we have called for an early camp to give our athletes adequate time for preparation,” he said.
The table tennis team is being trained by Mike Solo, the field and track is under Leonard Dzanja and Titus Wankhama, the archery team is drilled by Tawina Mtaya while judo athletes are under a Japanese coach Ryoma Kudo.
Wankhama said the athletes are responding well to training.
