Berlin marathon runner-up Amos Kipruto has resumed training after shaking off a knee injury he sustained earlier this year which consequently forced him to pull out of the Tokyo Marathon set for Sunday.

In 2016, his debut in Rome Marathon saw him emerge the winner, before finishing in 12th position in the Amsterdam Marathon, where he clocked 2:09:06 the same year.

In 2017, Kipruto won the Seoul Marathon after running in 2:05:54, before finishing fifth in the Amsterdam Marathon in 2:05:43.

He started this season well after participating in his first World Marathon Majors race in Tokyo.

The athlete thanked all his fans and dedicated his good performance to all those who wished him well in his preparation for the race.

Kipruto was an unlikely hero as he came in second in Berlin last year September although his achievement may have been overshadowed by Eliud Kipchoge’s record-breaking heroics.

Later in December, Kipruto competed in Kolkata 25km Road Race in India where he finished third, a race he was using in the build up to the Tokyo Marathon.

However, he was unfortunate to suffer a knee injury earlier this year, Kipruto is happy to have resumed training and his longing for another race.
