"Rudisha is getting back to form and he is away with permission from us. He can train in Germany or even here. There is no problem," Mutwi said in Nairobi.

Head coach Boniface Tirem said Rudisha who is in Germany will have ample time to focus on his training and expects him to shake off his rust after staying out of competition for a full year.

"He has come back strongly running 1:44. For someone who has been out that long, it is a major step. We have discussed with him and he will have one or two races in Europe Cheap Air Max 97 Mens Australia , where we expect him to lower that time down to 1:43 or 1:42.
