The pressure is on but so is an Olympic gold medal. Or two!
So, what’s the plan for Joshua Cheptegei? Well, a low-key build-up with a single competitive outing before the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
Oh yes, he is also sure he will run the 10000m. For now at least.
“I will only compete in the World half marathon in March before the Olympics,” Cheptegei told New Vision Sports yesterday from his training base and home in Kapchorwa.
