|Why this sport?
||He was inspired to take up the sport by Kenyan distance runner Sammy Kitwara. "He saw me training at home and took a liking to me, offering to take me with him to Eldoret [Kenya] where I would live with him as I continued training. I wanted to run 10,000m and half marathon like Kitwara and so was doing training suited to long distances, but [Kenyan distance runner Moses] Kiptanui told me I should move to 1500m pointing out that I had a lot of speed."
