Kipruto becomes the new Marathon hero after making his record with a big win

Kenyans are known for their talents as far as long distance races are concerned. One of the big names in the long distance race is Eliud Kipchoge. Most of the fans refer to him as the greatest of all time. He is actually the best on earth at the moment. At one time in the Tokyo Olympic games, the commentator referred to him as the "genius ".However, today, Benson Kipruto has won the Marathon race after failing to win it two years ago. After working hard, Kipruto clocked 2.09.51 which is his personal record. He enters Kenya's book of history as the winner in the marathon.

As we celebrate Benson Kipruto, I urge young athletes to never give up as Kipruto did not give up after coming second some two years ago. Working hard and praying is a key to any success. We wish him all the best ahead. For more news updates tap on the follow link on the top right corner if you haven't done so to receive more news updates .
