Three time world half marathon champion Geoffrey Kamworor is optimistic of running better after the Covid 19-era.
The reigning world half marathon record holder has however regretted that the pandemic struck at a time when he was in top shape. He however says he will pick from where he left once the coronavirus dust settles.
“We were really preparing well and we were already on top of the shape and it is unfortunate that the virus came along and we had to break our camp and go back home where one needs a lot of discipline, I’m still training along to make sure I keep fit,” Kamworor said
Before the pandemic Kamworor was set for the defence of his World Half Marathon title on 29 March 2020, in the northern Polish Baltic coast city of Gdynia, which has now been pushed to September.
Despite the pandemic altering the athletics calendar and affecting athletes training schedule, the 27-year-old has urged fellow athletes to keep focus.
