Wilson eyeing Tokyo or London marathon titles in 2019

Former Berlin marathon champion Wilson Kipsang has set his focus to compete at the Tokyo or London marathons as 2019 nears.

Kipasang, who finished third at the 2018 Berlin marathon title said he will get a new programme in 2019 and has focused on the two races to begin his season.

“I will be competing in either Tokyo or London marathons starting in the new season. Berlin marathon is behind me and I want to ensure I focus on what is ahead,” said the two time London marathon.

The 2016 New York marathon winner broke the world marathon record in 2013 timing 2:03.23 and will be hoping to lower his time in the 2019 races.

“Running better time on each course is good and this time, I have focused for that great time,” added the 2012 Olympic marathon bronze medalist, who said the government has not paid him.

Kipsang won London marathon in 2012 (2:04.44) and 2014 timing 2:04.29 before going ahead to claim Tokyo marathon in 2017 timing 2:03.58.
