CHICAGO (USA): Edna Kiplagat hopes to send out a message to the Kenyan selectors who overlooked her for Olympic selection when she competes in the Chicago Marathon on Sunday, informs Xinhua. "I want to send a message to my critics and Chicago will provide the best platform, though I know there are a number of athletes who will equally good to win the race," she said. "I have done well in training and what will be important is to win the race." Kiplagat is also looking to put a marker down ahead of the World Championships in London next year where she could aim for a record third world marathon title.
