Kimaiyo and Limo leads Kenya stars to Porto Marathon 

NAIROBI (Xinhua) -- Kenyan runners Lawrence Kimaiyo and Jackson Limo will be the favorites during the 14th edition of Porto Marathon this Sunday.

With focus on the Commonwealth Games, the Kenyans will have to battle their colleagues while under pressure with a total of 15,000 participants expected.

“I have to win to have any chance of competing for Kenya in an international event. There are so many runners and to make the cut, you have to show your resilience,” said Kimaiyo on Wednesday.

Kimaiyo, 27, a former silver medalist at the Madrid Marathon, hopes to make either the Kenya team to Gold Coast Commonwealth Games in Australia in April or the Doha World Championships in 2019.

Among the elite runners in Portugal will be Salome Rocha in women’s category and in men’s Daniel Pinheiro, Ricardo Dias and Miguel Ribeiro. Porto Marathon is the second biggest after Lisbon.
