Andy Edwards, of Trackwise, did this interview of Vincent Kipruto. Vincent is one of the quietest of the young Kenyan athletes, but he should never be underestimated. Kipruto has run a 2:05 time three different times. Kipruto has been training for Frankfurt since June.
Vincent Kiprutto has the following race pedigree: 2008-Reims Marathon, third, 2:08.16, 2009-Paris, first, 2:05.47, Chicago, second, 2:06.08, 2010-Rotterdam, third, 2:05.13, Chicago, fifth, 2.)9.08, 2011, Rotterdam, second in 2:05.33, World Champs, Daegu, silver in 2:10.06, 2012-13th in London, 2:10.39, Hengshui/CHN, ninth in 2:13.20, and first in 2013 at Otsu/Lake Biwa, JPN, in 2:08.34.
He is quoted in the media notes as saying, ” I want to break my PB and run sub 2:05 in Frankfurt.”
