Obiri, who is the current 5000m champion gold in 2017 world Championships in London, a record, which she successfully defended in 2019 World Championships in Doha.
Earlier, Obiri had said that Tokyo Games are special for him since Olympic gold is the only medal I am missing in my career adding that she is really working extra hard to get it.
Abuka Makori on his part said that Gusii has been a traditional giant in terms of athletics. "Mary Moraa performance doesn't shock me. Only that she's grown to prominence like Hellen Obiri. The first Olympic Gold medalist in 10,000M was Naftali Temu. No Kenyan has ever won in Olympics since his 1968 victory."
"Wakale mkuje hapa nyuma tuongee bana, this time mmeamua gold tuonee ViuSasa, Obiri should come through for us with a gold medal." @I_amshit commented.
