Today was a busy day at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi, Kenya, as the transport and hospitality teams prepared to welcome over 500 athletes from around the world including delegations from Tajikistan, Afghanistan, Syria, the United Kingdom, Canada and the United States.
Meanwhile, across town at the Golden Jubilee Games Village, the energy and excitement continues to rise as athletes stream in throughout the day. The Village serves as a hub for the registration of athletes, spectators and volunteers.
Once registration is completed, attendees can relax with new and old friends in the Kenyan themed lounge, listen to a live band and enjoy fresh local fruit. Today was a day of new faces, new sounds and new languages.
