New York Marathon silver medalist Wilson Kipsang will be paced by his younger brother Noah Kiptoo Kiprotich in his attempt of setting a new world record at Sunday’s BMW Berlin Marathon.
Kiprotich, 29, is looking forward to a good run at the Berlin Marathon and help Kipsang reclaim the world record which was brocken by Dennis Kimetto in 2014.
Kiprotich, who started elite running in 2015 said his work is to run up to 31km and leave his elder brother Kipsang to carry on.
“I want to help my brother lower the course record, which is the world record. I will be looking forward to a good race,” said Kiprotich.
Kiprotich has been training with Kipsang since the latter returned from the New York Marathon last year.
Kipsang held the world record for one year when he broke it in 2013 by clocking 2:03:23 to eclipse the 2:03:38, which had been posted by compatriot Patrick Makau.
Kimetto improved the mark to become the first man to run under two hours and three minutes by clocking 2:02:57 in 2014 on the same course.
