Kipsang ready for championship action

30 April 2015, 12:11

Nairobi - Former marathon world record holder Wilson Kipsang has shifted focus to the IAAF World Athletics Championships in Beijing in August after relinquishing his London Marathon title to fellow Kenyan Eliud Kipchoge on Sunday.

Kipsang finished second behind Kipchoge, as part of an all-Kenyan top four which also included current world marathon record holder Dennis Kimetto in third place Stanley Biwott in fourth.

“I never thought I would challenge until the end. I never thought he would win it. I was confident that I would be the champion” he told the Star newspaper.

“It is after 39Km that I knew things were tricky after a twitch in my leg, which forced me to fall behind the pack for some time.

“I will go and rest a little bit before returning to training for the World Championships. I’m waiting for the selection of the team, the sooner the better.

“I want to go to Beijing since I have never represented my country in a championship.”

Kipsang has won the London Marathon two occasions and still holds the record for the fastest ever time.
