Uganda athletes anger at Happy Science Olympic mix-up
Ugandan track event athletes have blamed their failure to qualify for the Olympics on the inferior track they were forced to use for time trials.
These were supposed to be held at the national stadium but a double booking meant they had to make way for a Japanese Happy Science religious rally.
The Uganda Athletics Federation said had they been at the stadium, at least five athletes could have qualified.
