Kirui talked of not only what this win meant for him today, but his desire to now be part of a possible tremendous marathon match-up in London next year.
Highlights: “[Both of us the men’s and women’s winners] being guided by Renato Canova it is amazing. We are shedding tears right now. It is wonderful, amazing. I have been deciding to do something [great] on the soil of America… I was putting all my prayers and efforts to win today.”
“I think now I need to meet with three guys. I was praying so hard that I get something [good] here so I [could] request to my manager to meet with Eliud [Kipchoge] and [Kenenisa] Bekele and Wilson Kipsang next year in London. That is my main goal in life.”
