Asbel Kiprop to race against time in Oslo Diamond League meet

NAIROBI (Xinhua) -- World 1,500m champion Asbel Kiprop of Kenya has said fast competition at the Oslo Dream Mile will inspire him to run faster time in Norway on Saturday.

Triple world champion, 2008 Olympic champion and current world top runner in the 1500m and mile, Asbel Kiprop is in good form producing one of the performances of the day at the Birmingham Diamond League last Sunday claiming the 1500m meeting record and also rewriting his own world leading time in 3:29.33.

"I have had three days recovery and it is good weather so far, so I feel ready and capable of running my personal best. Depending on the weather on the day, I am optimistic that I can run fast," Kiprop said.

"After the race here I go back to Kenya for three weeks preparation for the Kenyan trials and then, hopefully, Rio. It will not be easy because we have so many talented runners but I will try my best."
