This season, Faith Kipyegon ran an 800m and lead the world, and also an exciting 1000m. In 2022, she wants to go to 5000m? Sounds devastating to me! Faith Kipyegon is awesome! She has wheels that just do not come off!
Kipyegon for 5000 m
NAIROBI (KEN): Olympic 1500m champion Faith Kipyegon wants to step up to 5000m after the Tokyo Olympics. “My focus has now shifted and I want to compete in 5000m after the Tokyo Olympic Games. This is my dream as I seek new challenges in my career,” she said. However, she added she is unlikely to double up in championships. The Kenyan has competed just twice at distances longer than 3000m – two 5000m races in 2015, headed by a 14:31.95. From The Star.
