Wilson Kipsang is the former World Record holder in the marathon, an Olympic bronze medalist and winner of NYC and London marathons. In 2015, Wilson was second in London, a dnf in Beijing, and a fourth place in NYC Marathon. Don't under estimate Wilson Kipsang; he is a man on a mission.

In my interviews with Wilson, I have found a man who loves his family, his country, his sponsor and his sport. Wilson Kipsang is proud of his running, and wants that world record once again. In this interview, Wilson speaks about his involvement with AKTIV Against Cancer, and his concerns about cancer.

This interview is part of the AKTIV Diary series, which the Shoe Addicts are producing with the support of adidas. AKTIV mon kreft (AKTIV against Cancer) was founded in 2010 by Halle Aaeneson and Grete Waitz. With twelve sites dedicted to helping cancer patients find a fitness program that works for them, AKTIV supports research at Sloat Kettering in research to investigate how exercise can help cancer patients in their recovery.

This is the second video of our series, The AKTIV Against Cancer Diaries. For more information on AKTIV Against Cancer, please go to
