Nairobi- The father of Kenyan athlete Kelvin Kiptum, world marathon record holder, asked the government of Kenya to investigate the circumstances of the death of his son, who died on Sunday night in a traffic accident in the west of the country.

“Kiptum was my only son. He has left me, his mother and his children. (…) I am deeply saddened,” added Cheruiyot.

Excited, he noted that his son assured him the last time they spoke that he felt good and that he was prepared to break the marathon record again, under two hours.

“He told me that someone will come and help us build a house. She said that his body is now in shape and that he can now run for (achieve) 1:59 (one hour and 59 seconds)” in the marathon test, the athlete’s father revealed.
