Boxer, Floyd Mayweather is still the highest-earning sportsman having earned $300million over the past 12 months.

The corky American topped Forbes rich list for the second year running thanks mostly to his mega-fight with Manny Pacquiao. The Pilipino himself collected $160m from the Las Vegas fight which put him second behind Mayweather.

The two boxers and former world number one Tiger Woods are the only athletes to earn nine-figures in a single year.

Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo was third in the list with earnings of $79.6m, nearly six million more than Lionel Messi’s $73.8m in fourth.

Tiger

Swiss tennis star Roger Federer earned $67m in fifth followed by NBA duo LeBron James and Kevin Durant at $64.8m and $54.1m respectively. Tiger Woods remained in the top 10 (9th) despite an injury-ravaged season and a loss of form with earnings of $50.6m, just 200,000 lesser than fellow golfer Phil Mickelson in 8th. Woods earned only $600,000 in winnings but banked big in endorsements with $50m.

Forbes' earnings figures include salaries, bonuses, prize money and appearance fees, as well as estimates on licensing and endorsement income for the past 12 months.

The list only includes athletes active during the last 12 months.

Kenya women’s volleyball team will add only three new faces to their triumphant side who won the Africa Cup of Nations two years ago in Nairobi.

Kenya Pipeline duo of center Trizah Atuka and left attacker Noel Murambi are the two who will be given their maiden appearance to the national team with the this year’s edition serving off on Friday at the Kasarani indoor arena.

The Malkia Strikers as they are known welcome back Kenya Prisons’ right attacker Lydia Maiyo to the fray having missed Kenya’s seventh African title in 2013.

Captain Braxcides Agala who plays in France together with setter Jane Wacu and Mercy Moim, based in Finland are the three foreign-based players in the squad.

Ever Green

Setter Janet Wanja, the most experienced player in the squad, is on her fifth appearance at the continental showpiece having made her debut a decade ago.

The ever green player says the mood in camp couldn’t be any better as the team is ready to defend their crown and qualify for Japan World Cup in October.

“The players are happy so is the technical bench,” said the Kenya Pipeline player. “Unlike in previous editions, we now have sponsors and that means everything is taken care of with allowances paid promptly,” she added.

Asked on the prospects of facing tough oppositions in the competition, she said: “Playing at home make us a bit anxious since fans will not settle for anything less than victory. We shall however strive to give them exactly that.”

June 11-20

Other players named by head coach David “Demosh” Lung’aho include Evelyn Makuto, Monica Biama, Ruth Chepng’etich and Libero Elizabeth Nafula Wanyama.

Senegal, Mauritius and Botswana have landed in Nairobi in readiness for the June 11-20 competition and will be joined by other competitors including Cameroon, Tunisia and Algeria.
