Nairobi - Two-time World and Olympic 800m champion David Rudisha was among a host of Kenyan champions included in the squad to defend the world title at the London championships in August.

Rudisha is one of the seven gold medallists from the Beijing world championships two years and was exempted from competing at the two-day Kenyan national trials which ended on Saturday.
