Kirui urge AK to establish athletes’ medical cover

Two time world marathon champion Abel Kirui has urged Athletics Kenya to establish a medical cover as well as welfare fund for athletes to avoid running into poverty after retirement.

The former Chicago marathon champion said athletes thrive, winning medals for the country but some end up living a poor life after retirement, forgetting that they won medals for the country.
