Kamworor puts title on line in New York marathon
NAIROBI — Reigning New York Marathon champion Geoffrey Kamworor says his opponents will need to have better strategy and greater strength to deny him a second title on Sunday.
The 26-year-old says he has enjoyed an injury-free build-up to this year’s New York Marathon and is in his best form ever, as he looks to improve on his personal best time of 2:06:12, set in Berlin two years ago.
“My preparations have been good since I have not had any challenges. My main aim is to go to New York and do what I did last year which is to win, but I am aware that it all depends on hard work and focus in the race,” said Kamworor on Thursday in Nairobi. — Agencies
