Rudisha out of Kenya's World Champs squad

World and Olympic 800m champion David Rudisha was left out of Kenya's 49-strong athletics team named on Sunday for next month's World Championships in Moscow.

The 24-year-old world record holder missed the championship trials due to a knee injury but the selectors said they would monitor his condition in the next week before deciding whether he would defend his world title at the August 10-18 event.

Olympic 800m bronze medallist Timothy Kitum will also not compete in Moscow after failing to qualify when he finished a poor sixth behind race winner Anthony Chemut.

Two rookies, Ferguson Rotich and Jeremia Mutai, who took second and third positions behind the 20-year-old Chemut were selected in the team.
