Kenya’s Korir ditches politics, eyes return
to road race at Beirut Marathon

NAIROBI (Xinhua) -- Former Boston Marathon winner and 2016 Olympian Wesley Korir will make his comeback in road racing at the Beirut Marathon on Nov. 11.

Korir has not raced since April 2017 but after taking time out from his political career in Kenya, the 35-year-old is planning to get back to winning ways next month.

“Everything is going well, I’m trying to get in shape after politics and run full-time again,” said Korir on Friday in Nairobi. “Getting a win in Beirut will be a boost for me as I get back to the top level.”

Korir will face strong opposition from teammates Ezekiel Omullo and Ben Kimutai and Houston Marathon winner Bazu Worku from Ethiopia.
