The United States of America has pledged to continue collaborating with Kenyans to boost integrity in sports.
US Ambassador to Kenya Kyle McCarter lauded Kenyan athletes for their prowess which has earned the country global acclaim.
McCarter spoke when he paid a visit to Global Sports Communication training camp in Kaptagat, Elgeyo-Marakwet County that has produced renowned runners like Olympics marathon champion Eliud Kipchoge and world half marathon record holder Geoffrey Kamworor.
“This was a private visit and I wanted to come and have a feel of where the athletes train for them to be successful. We wanted to meet Kipchoge not because he is a world record holder but because he is a good example to the future generation,” said McCarter.
McCarter said Kipchoge good characteristics for a good leader in Kenya.
“Kipchoge is a good example to many and that is what is expected from a leader. Many youths are looking up to him and this shows one can achieve his/her dreams when you work hard,” he said.
