For Geoffrey Kamworor, three seconds of sweet victory


You have to admire Geoffrey Kamworor. The man has two World Half Marathon titles and two World Cross Country titles. He also has a World Champs silver medal at 10,000 meters. Geoffrey Kamworor has battled the best, including Mo Farah and won.

Geoffrey Kamworor has run six marathons, and finally, he has a victory.

Training with Eliud Kipchoge, and listening to the zen master, Geoffrey Kamworor has learned a bit of patience. The pace was championship like, a 1:06:12 half way, with a big group, so Geoffrey Kamworor bidded his time. That is also what Wilson Kipsang, who already has a victory in New York was doing as well.

When Geoffrey Kamworor moved, he blasted away with a 4:31 mile! That broke Lelisa Desisa and Lemi Berhanu, but Wilson Kipsang was not giving up.

As Geoffrey Kamworor got closer and closer to the finish, Wilson Kipsang moved the difference from ten seconds to five seconds, to with the final push, three seconds!

Geoffrey Kamworor worked for his first marathon win, and he took it in three precious seconds!

All the more to savor, and be called the 2017 TCS New York City Marathon champion!
