BY JOHN WERU,NAIROBI,4TH OCT,2020-World record holder Eliud Kipchoge who was beaten in the London Marathon by the Ethiopian Shura Kitata on Sunday has assured his fans that he will be back again and he will again win in future.
Four-time winner Kipchoge was the favourite, but fell behind with two laps to go and finished eighth.
Kitata pushed ahead of Kenya’s Vincent Kipchumba on the home straight to finish in two hours five minutes and 41 seconds.
In a post race interview, Kipchoge said he had a problem with his year but said he still has more gas and would compete in future races.
“Absolutely, still more marathons for me,” he said when asked of his future.
Brigid Kosgei, who holds the women’s world record, defended her title.
