Kenya’s primary hopeful athlete in gold in the men’s marathon at the Rio Olympics was apparently stranded at the Galeao Global Air terminal in Brazil on Tuesday night.
This is after no authority from the Kenyan camp offered to get him at the air terminal..
As per reports, Eliud Kipchoge was later compelled to ask for a ride from Ugandan marathoner Stephen Kiprotich, who is his own companion.
Embarrassingly,” the Monitor reports, “Kipchoge had no one from the Kenyan camp to pick him at Galaeao, so he hiked a lift in Kiprotich’s car to the Olympic Village.”
Kipchoge is among the most recent entry to the Olympics amusements and is viewed as a beyond any doubt wager to procure Kenya a platform complete in the men’s marathon. Kipchoge and Kiprotich will go head to head in the men’s marathon slated for Sunday morning.
The Kenyan has posted some the best timings over the order this year and is looking to oust his Ugandan partner of the Olympic title.
Other Kenyan senior officials in Brazil including Sports Cabinet Secretary Hassan Wario and chief de mission Stephen Soi are facing increased scrutiny over the litany of embarrassments and scandals associated with Kenya at the games in Rio.
