Double Olympic champion Eliud Kipchoge is looking forward to winning his record third Olympic gold medal at the 2024 Paris Olympic Games.
The Kenyan marathon great is seeking to break the record held by Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt as the only man with three Olympic gold medals.
“I’ll be the happiest person on earth to win an Olympic medal for the third time, back-to-back-to-back,” he said at a press conference in Oviedo, Spain.
Kipchoge won his fifth Berlin Marathon title in September with an eye on the upcoming assignments in Paris next year.
Kipchoge, 38 witnessed his world record broken by fellow Kenyan Kelvin Kiptum who clocked two hours and 35 seconds at the Chicago Marathon on October 8.
The 38-year-old added that he was “not surprised” by compatriot Kelvin Kiptum breaking his world record with a time of two hours 35 seconds at the Chicago Marathon on October 8 2023.
