Details On Why Marathon G.O.A.T. Kipchoge Wants To Run With US President,

Eliud Kipchoge, a Kenyan marathoner, has explained why he wants to reconnect with former US President Barack Obama.

The first person on earth to complete a marathon in under two hours, Kipchoge, has revealed that he would want to invite former US President Barack Obama to join him for a run in Kenya.

Last month, when asked who he would like to go for a morning run with, living or dead, Kipchoge responded, "I guess I would choose Barack Obama."

"Obama has a character of inspiration, the character of unity, and it goes beyond all human nature, I would invite him to Kenya to run", he said.

Additionally, the marathon champion claims that Obama is an influence and that he would like to converse with him and exchange ideas.

Kipchoge said to NTV on Monday, "When I get the chance to run with Obama, since I feel Obama is a real inspiration to all leaders in the country and outside, I will run with him and share".

He said the track would be the ideal location for him to speak with the 44th US president because he often gets brilliant ideas while he is running.
