"This year, after running in London (she finished fifth), I decided to focus on my speed and was planning to run at the Beijing World Championships.

"Winning is the only thing that will sway the coaches to consider me for Rio Olympics. I want to wrap it up fast and wait to see how other Kenyans perform in New York and April marathons," said Kiplagat.
