Asbel Kiprop and Mo Aman, Doha Presser, photo by Larry Eder
This interview was with Asbel Kiprop, Olympic and World Champion at 1500 meters, and Mo Aman, World Champion, Indoors and Out, for 800 meters.
The interview took place on Wednesday, May 13 at the Intercontinental Hotel in Doha in the Media room. Asbel gave an impassioned commentary on his frustrations with Athletics Kenya and their ridiculous (my words) probation of Rosa International. Mo Aman spoke about training with Mark Rowland and how he wants the World Championships at 800 meters this year.
Their performances were quite different on Friday. Asbel stayed in the thick of things until the very end, finishing fifth in 1:45.12. Mo Aman looked just short of racing, having run a 1:47 for the 800 meters.
Asbel Kiprop will run the 1000 meters in Ostrava on May 26 and the Bowerman mile at Pre on May 30. Mo Aman, our guess is, will run at Pre.
