Moses Kipsiro expected to challenge at Ottawa Marathon

Ottawa, Canada| IAAF| Although his best time is almost eight minutes slower than the course record, Uganda’s Moses Kipsiro is expected to challenge a contingent of Ethiopian runners at the Scotiabank Ottawa Marathon, an IAAF Gold Label Road Race, on 28 May.

The 2007 world 5000m bronze medallist and three-time Commonwealth Games gold medallist has been a major force on the track for the past decade, but the 30-year-old has also had his share of troubles.

He missed the podium by one place at the 2008 Olympics and 2009 World Championships. At the London 2012 Olympic Games he fell during the Olympic 10,000m final and wound up a disappointed 10th. But it was only a year ago that he turned his attention to the marathon, recording a PB of 2:14:18 at the 2016 New York Marathon where he finished seventh. Now he is preparing to show the athletics world what he is really capable of at the classic distance.
