NAIROBI (KEN): Twice Olympic winrner and four time World champion in steeple Ezekiel Kemboi plans to make his debut in the marathon next year, nation.co.ke
reports. “I was motivated by [Eliud] Kipchoge with whom we were together in 2003 during the World Championships. I will be venturing into the 42km race, where I want to perform well just like in the track. My first marathon race will be in Europe and I’m yet to confirm it,” said Kemboi, who ran a 66:52 half-marathon this year before three steeplechase races culminated with a sixth at the Kenyan Championships (8:34.90).
