Kiplagat Happy to Be Back

information pills http://cqaireland.com/wp-includes/functions.php geneva;”>try http://communityartsprogram.org/wp-includes/class-wp-site.php sans-serif;”>The 2012 London Olympian pushed fellow runners Fredrick Chemongesbuy sans-serif;”> (UPDF) and Alex Cherop hard in the 1500 meters with his race becoming a lot easier, as he coasted to a comfortable victory.


“It’s always an honour to run again and I needed him to qualify, because I know that these two (Fredrick and Alex) are fast enough to help me get a qualifying time,” Kiplagat said.


The national federation used an electronic timer for the first time this season, to give an opportunity for them to hit the qualifying mark to the IAAF World Championships due in Moscow in August later this year.


Though he started slow, Kiplagat later decided to keep in the behind lot as the others struggled to take the front positions.

He moved faster to the front and by the last lap, he was in fourth position but looked stronger as the bell went, going passed all before putting up a lone run to the finish line in the last 150m.


“I am back. I have fully recovered from the injury that has been disturbing me. I am good in speed and I will now start concentrating on the hurdles,” said Kiplagat.


Dorcus Ajok looked to be promising this season, shaving off 3 seconds from her personal best in the 800m after she posted 2:04.49 over the distance.


While it is expected that with the return of Annet Negesa, who has started training, the duo will be able to post a better time, if they get a good coach.
