Kipruto plotting to break his own record

The reigning world under 20 10,000m champion Rhonex Kipruto will be hoping to lower his 10km world record when the coronavirus pandemic ends.

According to Daily Nation, the young runner believes that with good preparations his record can dip further after breaking the world record during the Valencia Ibercaja road race in 26:23 breaking Uganda’s Joshua Cheptegei time of 26:38.

According to Kipruto, when the camps were closed, they decided to go home and train individually.

The two normally wake up early in the morning for their normal run that covers about 21km before settling down to some easy farm work.

He termed the world record as the perfect gift for his training mates who helped him during the December holidays pushing him to his limits during preparations.
