• Manangoi urges athletes not to give up as sports action remains cancelled

"I was highly ambitious at the start of the year. I dreamt of running in Tokyo, that was my biggest factor, it helped me remain focused, but we have to wait until next year. The coronavirus forced the Olympic Games to be postponed to 2021 and there is nothing we can do to change that," he added.

Manangoi says there is very low morale as he keeps training alone at home, because there is nobody pushing him to run.

"It is like running against time when I train at home. I have a treadmill at home, and some stuff for weights and muscles. It is not like in the training camp, you really need to be determined to train at home," he added.

To pass time, Manangoi is engaging himself in planting trees at his farm and also do a lit bit of agriculture. He also has some rental income to fall back to as the financial situation continues to be harder for the majority of people and sportsmen.
