“It opened my eyes to how disciplined they are,” he said. “The guys on the circuit had always said I should come to Kenya, but it was only when I took them seriously and decided to come here that I realised how hard they work.

“I couldn’t believe how many people were out running at 6am and 8am – just so many guys. There was a statistic this week that said 150 guys had the [Olympic] marathon qualifying time in Kenya. That speaks for itself.”

REBECCA ROMERO, the first Briton to win medals in two different sports in the Olympic Games, has announced her next sporting challenge – a gruelling Ironman triathlon.
The track cycling gold medallist from Beijing, who also rowed to silver in 2004 in Athens, will tackle a 2.4mile swim, 112mile bike ride and a 26.2mile marathon when she competes in Ironman UK, in Bolton, in July.

« I don’t just want to do a triathlon, I want to be part of a great epic event. »
