Robert Kibochi promotes The Silver Medalist Jepkosgei From Being A Corporal To Sergeant.

The chief of the defense forces Robert Kibochi has awarded the marathon Silver holder Joyciline Jepkosgei by giving her a promotion from corporal to sergeant.

Robert Kibochi, the chief of defense forces, yesterday saw it was wise to award the Silver Medal Champion as a Sergeant at the defense headquarters in Nairobi.

The London Marthon champions including Eliud Kipchoge a world Marathon record holder, Silver Medal holder Jepkosgei and Korir arrived yesterday and they were received with jubilation at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport.

Joyciline Jepkosgei was outsmarted by Ethiopian Yalemzerf after failing to maintain her pace. Jepkosgei argued that Yalemzerf was consistent with her pace which later forced her to believe in herself and used her own pace.

Jepkosgei claimed that his career as a police officer has helped her attain her dreams of being a Silver holder. She added that she will ensure that apart from actualizing her dreams she will serve the country of Kenya with allegiance.
