Kenya lost by three straight sets to hosts Japan in women’s Volleyball in their 2020 Tokyo Olympics opener.

The Malkia Strikers went down 25-15 in the first set before falling 25-11 in the second set.

The Kenyan queens gave a better fight in the last set managing a respectable 25-23 loss, but it was too late to turn things around.

Kenya will next face Korea on Tuesday.

In general, Kenya has had a poor start to the summer games with all her athletes so far competed losing.

Boxers Nick Okoth and Christine Ongare have all lost their bouts in the preliminaries.
