Congratulations to the CFK Sprinters! January 30, 2014  by      

This past December, Carolina for Kibera served proudly as the co-host of partner organization One World One Rope’s 4th Annual East Africa Jump Rope Competition & Camp.  (You may remember in July of last year that some of the members of the CFK Sprinters, CFK’s very own jump rope team, got the opportunity to travel to the U.S. to compete in One World One Rope’s World Competition & Camp.  You can read that story here.)  Our jumpers did remarkably well, earning lots of medals in both team and individual events.

Several teams from all over Kenya and Tanzania traveled to Kibera to compete and learn from each other.  Moreover, much like the worldwide competition, the event brought people together from all over the world.  Coaches from Canada, Japan, and the U.S. came to share their skills and cheer on the competitors.

You can catch a glimpse of one of the events in the video above, wherein Ida performs an awesome freestyle routine.  (Video c/o One World One Rope.)
