The dreaded curse of defending champions befell Bloggers team who failed to defend the football title during this year’s SuperSport Media Fun Day held Impala grounds. The Online scribes failed to win or score in any of their four group matches ending with two defeats and two draws.
Led by captain Amos Abuga and boasting talents like the lethally left-footed Kevin Otieno and prolific Stephen Ayoo, Bloggers started their day with a barren draw against Media Max before registering the same result against Citizen. Two 1-0 defeats followed at the hands of Standard and Supersport.
Supersport would go on and lift the football title after shocking a fine Capital FM side 1-0, Anita Nderitu netting an own goal in the dying minutes.
However, the Bloggers didn’t leave the tournament empty handed as they won medals after dominating in the 4x100m sprint relay. With polished handovers, Bloggers destroyed the field finishing tops in both their semifinal and final races.
Citizen won the 5-aside rugby competition after edging out Media Select in sudden death.
The competition was held to celebrate sports journalism and attracted participation from 10 media teams.
