We received an email this morning from agent Ricky Simms informing us that four-time World Champion (2009 and 2011 5000, 2011 10,000 and 2011 XC) Vivian Cheruiyot has given birth to a baby boy.
We are pleased to announced that 2012 Laureus World Sportswoman of the Year Vivian Cheruiyot gave birth to a baby boy on Saturday evening at 7:45pm Kenyan time.
Mother and baby are doing well.
The question now becomes how quickly will the 2012 double Olympic medallist (bronze 10,000, silver 5,000) and Kenyan 5000 record holder (14:20.87) get back to action.
