Agnes Jebet Tirop was the 7th child in a family of ten children and she was the bread winner. Basically, for those who didn't know, Agnes Tirop has been laid to rest today on her birth date and it was so emotional. According to records that parents gave, Tirop was born on 23rd October 1995 and today she was turning 26 years old. Basically, the burial event was attended by several Kenyan and Ugandan athletes. Everybody had a story to tell concerning the memories which they made with Agnes while they were in their athletics activities. Hellen Obiri even broke into tears as she was speaking.
She revealed that they had several plans with Tirop and basically she wanted the young girl to fit on her shoes so that she can bag medals in the 5000M races. Tirop had admitted to train until she carries a gold medal. Hellen Obiri knew that she has a successor but unfortunately death has robbed us our medalist. Rest In Peace Agnes.
