The Kenyan side started the match with high hopes of emerging winners but Japan ladies had different ideas. They won the first set by 25 to Malkia's 15.
It should be recalled that Kenya is yet to win a single set at the Olympics. Malkia strikers are expected to face off with the reigning European Champions Serbia and two-time Olympic Champions Brazil in their group.
A loss will leave Paul Bitok's side with the heavy task of qualifying to the next level.
In my view, much is supposed to be for our national teams when it comes to international competitions. It is unfair for us to participate and end up winning nothing.
