Emmaculate Anyango has talked about how she relates with trailblazing youngster Agnes Ngetich.

23-year-old Emmaculate Anyango has shared on the type of relationship she shares with trailblazing youngster Agnes Ngetich.

Anyango and Ngetich competed at the Urban Trail de Lille 10km race where the former finished second as Ngetich finished third.

However, Anyango disclosed that there is no bad blood between them since they started competing against each other when they were very young. She noted that they push each other to the limits when they compete together.

“We started running with her (Agnes) from primary school and I can say we know each other well…we know each other’s weaknesses too.

We usually push each other when competing together and if she was here (Iten), the competition would be very high,” she said during a post-race interview at the Athletics Kenya Cross-country in Iten.

Anyango was just fresh from a dominant triumph that saw her clock 33:22 to cut the tape ahead of Betty Jepkemoi and Deborah Samum who finished second and third in respective times of 34:19 and 35:08.

She will now be looking forward to making the cut to the World Cross-country team where she aims to impress.

“At the moment, I want to go back to the drawing board and ensure I am training well ahead of the trials at the World Cross-country Championships. I know I will clash with other able athletes,” she said.
