Quote Of The Day
“I train a lot with my brother and he also provides me with some coaching advice. He is my hero and when he returned after winning the 2017 race in Kolkata, he told me a lot about what it was like to be running around on the roads here. I will be able to form my own impressions on Sunday. Ultimately, I think I have the capabilities of running even as fast as my brother in the marathon but my transition from a track runner to a road runner has not been easy, and we are also two different runners with different abilities.”
