Kipyegon, Cheruiyot set for Monaco meeting

Reigning Olympics 1500m champion Faith Kipyegon and world 1500m champion Timothy Cheruiyot are set to compete at the Monaco Diamond League on August 14.

Monaco will be the first race in the series following the cancelation of all sporting events due to coronavirus pandemic.

It will also be the first competitive appearance for Kipyegon since clinching silver at the 2019 World Championships in Doha, Qatar.

Cheruiyot will be competing in his preferred 1500m race and will be clashing with Norwegian brothers Jakob and Filip Ingebrigsten.

Cheruiyot, the three-time Diamond League champion will be seeking revenge against the Norwegians who beat Kenyans to win the virtual race at the Impossible Games held on June 11.

World 5,000m champion Helen Obiri and Olympic 3,000m steeplechase chase champion Conseslas Kipruto are other kenyans who will be running the opener.
