Faith Kipyegon has explained why breaking the 5000m world record remains to be a surprising occurrence to her, a feat that left her in tears.
She lauded Kipyegon for being a mentor to millions all over the world and expressed her excitement towards meeting Kipyegon.
She said: “Look who visited us today... An honor to meet a record-breaking athlete and her family. You are an inspiration to millions of women & girls worldwide!”
Meanwhile, Kipyegon has enjoyed a stellar track season with her world records over the 1500m, 5000m, and the mile.
All her three records were ratified but her 5000m record has since been broken by Ethiopia’s Gudaf Tsegay who put up a good fight to win the Prefontaine Classic, the Diamond League Meeting final.
Kipyegon also won double gold, in the 1500m and 5000m, at the World Championships in Budapest, Hungary.
