Wakiso - Uganda’s most decorated runners Stephen Kiprotich and Moses Kipsiro have confirmed they will miss next month’s World Athletics Championships in London.
The duo will not be part of the 20 man team, the biggest contingent ever to represent Uganda in the tourney, due to personal reasons.
The experienced pair of long distance runners, who boast of six championship medals, had qualified for the men’s marathon event but have opted out of the biennial event slated for August 4th – 13th.
Speaking after Day One of the National Track and Field Championships at Namboole stadium, Kiprotich said his body and mind were not ready, while Kipsiro, a three-time Commonwealth Gold Medalist says a marathon is all about preparation yet he does not feel ready.
