Kelvin Kiptum: It was untimely death, says Emmanuel Mutai

The 2011 London marathon champion Emmanuel Kipchirchir Mutai was in a sad mood following the death of world marathon record holder Kelvin Kiptum.

Mutai, who is now retired from running, said that Kiptum was a young man who had the potential to inspire the rest of the world in athletics.

He said that as an athlete, he ran his races very well across the world and retired honourably before hanging his spikes, unlike Kiptum who has died at his tender age.

“Kiptum had the potential to shine and his death is a blow not just to Kenyans but the rest of the world. It is painful that he died at a tender age unlike some of us who ran until we retired very well. Right now we are enjoying our retirement. For him, he has not even enjoyed his sweat,” said Mutai.
