ELDORET (KEN): Edna Kiplagat, the 2011 and 2013 world marathon champion, intends to try to compete in the championships for the fifth time this year. The 39-year-old Kenyan, who won silver last time out, told Xinhua news agency: "I love the World Championships because it lacks the pace setters. It is an open race. I have won two times and if I am given an opportunity to represent my country, it will be honor I cannot turn down. It will offer me a chance to go for my third gold."
