Besieged Asbel Kiprop aspiring to be a rally driver

Two time world 1,500m champion Asbel Kiprop has quit on track and ventured into rally championships.

The besieged track master is currently serving a ban after the Athletics Integrity Unit banned him for anti-doping rule violation with use of Erythropoietin (EPO).

On his official twitter account  @kipropAsbel, the former Olympic champion.


I’m ready to begin again in a sport that doesn’t have doping conspiracy. I will be patient again to be able to Champion. I will be climbing this ladder hoping to learn the next game. #Motorsport

The same message was relayed on his facebook page while posing with rally driver coach Abdul Sidi. He wrote: Abdul Sidi Coach in next Sport. Hope it works out. #Motorsport coming soon.

He communicated the same to a whatsapp group called Sports Plus Agenda, the forum that many athletes communicate and address their issues.

He wrote: “Guys I will be venturing into Rally racing. I will have resiliency hope & determination that athletics have thought me. I will humbly begin like a learner. What will drive me there is what I learned in athletics.” He wrote.

He went ahead: “I have come to learn that Sports is not only about athletics but every sportspersoson is an athlete. Like I was doubted when I was in STD 7 If I would be capable of becoming a world class athlete… I still believe I will overcome fear & inexperience in my next Sport. I will champion with time. Thank God there will be No EPO Conspiracy there.
