Yego taking a break

08 September 2015, 13:52

Nairobi - Julius Yego revealed that he will not challenge for the Diamond League Javelin title as he has achieved everything he wanted this season.

The Kenyan is currently sitting in fourth place in the Diamond League race, which Vitezslav Vesely is leading. It is mathematically impossible for him to catch up to the Czech. 

Yego shocked the world with his world leading throw of 92.72m to win the gold medal at the IAAF World Championships in Beijing. 

"For me, I achieved what I had set out to do this year," said the 26-year-old.

"I won the world championship gold medal in Beijing, there is nothing else left. In any case there is no chance of me catching up and overhauling Vesely."
