Nairobi - Wilson Kipsang is targeting a title defence at the 2015 New York City Marathon on November 1.
However, the Kenyan superstar will face stiff competition from
Ethiopian duo Lelisa Desisa and Gebremariam, who finished second and
third at the 2014 event.
"My training is going very well and I am very happy to come back to
race the streets of New York City again and defend my title," revealed
the 33, who is the only marathoner to have run under 2:05 six times.
Meanwhile, race director Peter Ciaccia is thrilled to have such a competitive line-up in New York.
"We're thrilled to welcome back our defending champion Wilson
Kipsang, along with Meb Keflezighi, America's top marathoner, and this
year's Boston Marathon champion, Lelisa Desisa, for the 2015 TCS New
York City Marathon," he said.
