Kenya’s women’s coach Muge Abdulrahman Kibet is considered one of the most famous coaches in Kenya in the last few years. After coaching domestic teams for seven years, Kibet, 39, started his job as head coach with the senior women’s team in January 2003 after being the trainer of the team at the 2002 World Championship with the head coach at that time Ohania. Kenya finished 16th in that World Championship.

When Kibet started his job he called in experienced professional players playing abroad, like the Greece based Violet Barasa and Nsikanda who plays in USA and in his first competition, he led the team to a bronze medal at the All Africa Games in Abuja, Nigeria. Now Kibet has some new emerging young players in the squad to make a promising combination of youth and experience.
 
In January 2004 he became a national hero when he saw Kenya qualify for their second successive Olympic games following big victories at the African Continental Olympic Qualification tournament in Nairobi against Egypt, the African champions, and Nigeria, the All
Africa Games gold medalist.
