BEST OF THE BEST
29 April 2019
The 2019 winners of the Virgin Money London Marathon Kenyan maestros Eliud Kipchoge and Brigid Kosgei yesterday chatted about their race experience.Here are some of the best quotes from this morning’s post-race press conference:
“I like to keep a low profile. I celebrate on the finish line. When I go back to Kenya I chill around, stay with my family and have massages and ice baths.”
“Last night after the race I got together with my team and sponsors. We had tea and dinner. I don’t drink.”
“I take two to three weeks of total rest before I start some light running again. In this time, I also start planning for the next goal.”
“I love the sport. That is what drives me.” (on how he keeps motivated).
“When I get back home, I will celebrate with my husband and kids. They all supported me while I was over here.”
“The first half of the race was very slow and the second half very fast. I think it is because in the first half all of us were waiting for the other to make a move. And while you are waiting for the others, the clock keeps on running and time slips away. That was the problem.”
