Kipsang and Kimetto ready for London battle

08 April 2015, 11:46

Nairobi - Wilson Kipsang's marathon record was broken by Dennis Kimetto at the 2014 Berlin Marathon, where the 31-year-old powered to victory in 2:02:57.

"My training is well and I am working towards taking a title," said Kimetto, who has won the Berlin, Tokyo and Chicago marathons.

"The field is very strong and the secret cards will work. At the moment, I am working on speed and I hope the favour will be on my side when the day comes." 

Meanwhile, Kipsang is confident of securing a third London title.

"My focus at the moment is to run London Marathon, where I will be going for a third win," said the 33-year-old.

"I want to improve on my course record hence I am targeting to run under 2:04:00. I am aware that to achieve this, I must time my splits well and I am committed to doing that."
