Chanel talks rugby in Nairobi

Young player Chanel discusses her experiences of rugby and what she learns from the sport

Chanel Mogo, 12, is a pupil at Thika Road Primary School in Nairobi, Kenya. She’s been playing rugby for about 2 years. Chanel tells us, with a smile, that the first time she played rugby, she got a black eye! But she wasn’t deterred – she came back for more. Chanel says she was not a natural sports participant, but was encouraged to join in and now loves it.

Watch Chanel in this short video as she took time out from tournament day to talk to us:
