I found an article the Daily Nation in Kenya on Rudisha from earlier this week. Rudisha seems to be quarantining well with his wife and three daughters which is great as he and his wife were having some serious problems not too long ago.
But what struck me was how big he talked about his training. What should we make of it? Was he really fit or is this typical Kenyan style writing that features overly dramatic quotes?
The Nation wrote:
"I was expecting this year to be my year of a big comeback,..
“The crisis has put me in an awkward situation. I am fit for now but I don’t know when I will run my next race. I can’t idle around. I must do some training to keep in shape until the season bounces back.”
“I was planning to sit down with my manager Michel Boeting and strategise which races I will compete in this year but this crisis has put on hold our plans,” said Rudisha.
"It is sad that I have been training hard and I was almost hitting my top form just a few months before the Olympic Games."
