Robert Kiprono Cheruiyot


Kenya’s Robert Kiprono Cheruiyot won the 114th edition of the Boston Marathon in record time on the 19th of April (read news article).

How Robert Kiprono Cheruiyot is different from other athletes is that he is considered to be a true marathoner” who rarely races other distances. Also, he has finished fifth or better in all four marathons he has entered.

Aged 21, Cheruiyot’s international debut was at the 2008 Frankfurt Marathon. Since he was not experienced, he had to purchase his own way and turn in a time under 2:14:00 to be reimbursed. He proceeded to surprise everyone, including himself, winning in the race with a course record 2:07:21!

So what’s this blog about?

Another attempt? Well yes. Attempting to figure out another sustainable model (there are some other attempts going on parallel-ly). Well, we have a lot of questions in mind. we read up stuff, we do some research to find answers to these questions. This is an attempt to publish that little 15-20 minute research.
