I saw Geoffrey Kamworor first when he won the IAAF World Half Marathon Champs in March 2014. Then, Mr. Kamworor won the World Cross Country in March 2015. His silver medal in the 10,000 meters, in Beijing was his second battle with Mo Farah, after the 10,000 meters at the Pre Classic.

Kamworor is a tough competitor and well conditioned racer. The half marathon may be his perfect distance.


NAIROBI (KEN): Kenyan running star Geoffrey Kamworor hopes to successfully defend his world half marathon title in 2016 in world record breaking style, report IAAF. "If the conditions and the course is okay, I will attempt to break the world record," said the 22 year old Kenyan, who also holds the world cross country title. If he does break the world record in Cardiff, he will be the first man to do so in this championship.
