The police will now give him counseling.
"It's sad that the world will believe that I am guilty of taking the performance-enhancing drugs and yet I have been at the forefront of fighting doping in the sport."
Kiprop said, "My first (world) cross-country was the worst." The crazy thing is he won the world junior title in Mombasa but it was so hot he hated it. (World Cross in Mombasa was the most interesting event LRC's Wejo has ever been to)
Kiprop said the result in Rio would have been different if his teammate Elijah Manangoi had been in the race as he is a "team player" and helps Kiprop by setting a fast pace.
“It was good but it didn’t even happen that I won it live on the track,” he said. “I was given the medal afterwards. It would have been even better if I had won the Olympics live on track so I am still chasing the dream – winning the Olympics on the track. That is what I am longing for, what I am really hungry for. I really want to do that and hope I will one day.”
"I speak out loud because I feel for the humanity when an innocent person is being convinced pinned down accused falsely. It is our own people who doped our athletes and a good answer to this is when Mathew Kisorio doped he confessed and showed the doctor who doped him to the authorities. No action was taken against the doctor... I will not quit speaking the truth because it will set us all free. I will never join critics haters & false accusers. Take it to the bank,”
Kiprop asked for 1:51 through 800 (Hicham El Guerrouj was 1:50.7 when he set the WR).
