Dorothy Kimutai will be chasing Discovery Kenya junior title come 27th January at Eldoret Sports Club as the championships enters its 28th edition in Eldoret.
Kimutai, the Kenya national Secondary Schools Sports Association (KSSSA) 3,000m steeplechase champion will face a stiff competition from reigning world under 18 800m silver medalist Lydia Jeruto in the 6km junior race.
According to her coach David Maiyo, Kimutai has been training well in readiness for the title chase.
“She has been training well and I hope she will replicate the same when she takes to the field against her opponents,” said Maiyo who has nurtured many athletes across the country.
The Form two student at Kaptilol secondary school in Elgeyo Marakwet County has been training well and competing in various championships.
Last year, she finished 5th at the Athletics Kenya cross country meeting in Iten behind Agnes Jebet Ngetich, Winnie Kimutai, Catherine Reline and Jeptoo Kemboi.
“She has been competing veru well in some of the locally organosed races and I trained with her yesterday, proving to be the best competitor at the Discovery race,” added Maiyo.
