United Kingdom Track and Field All-Time Lists

EAST AND CENTRAL AFRICAN CHAMPIONSHIPS

The first East African Championships was staged in 1955 as a direct successor of the Kenya v Uganda matches first held in 1934 and subsequently also contested by Tanganyika from 1952. The meeting was originally solely contested by those three nations (Tanganyika combined with Zanzibar to become Tanzania in 1964), however Zambia became the fourth contestant in 1969. Further countries in the region began to enter the event in the 1970's with the event renamed the East and Central African Championships in 1971. Egypt also competed from 1981 to 1985, however after that date the meeting fell into decline with Kenya, amongst others, not contesting the final meeting in 1990. Winners of the East African (Zone V) Championships are listed at the base of this page.
