Tears as Hellen Obiri Leaks Crucial Details of Her Conversation With Agnes Tirop Before She Died

5000 Metres world champion, Hellen Obiri moved mourners at Agnes Tirop's burial ceremony at St Michael Kapnyamisa Primary School in Nandi County to tears after sharing details of her conversations with Agnes Tirop soon after the 2020 world Olympics held in Tokyo Japan a few months ago.

Hellen Obiri told mourners that she had passed the 5000M mantle to slain Agnes Tirop during an exemplary discussion they held soon after the olympic games.

"Just a few days after the olympic games were showcased at Tokyo Japan, we had a momentous deliberative discussion with Agnes Tirop and I cordially informed her of what I intented to do (to shift my career in track events to road races and marathon). She in return told me that she would work extra hard to fit into my shoes," Hellen Obiri stated.

Obiri expressed her shock in the death of Agnes Tirop given that Tirop's earlier promise was not going to bear fruits.
