ATHLETICS: Kiplagat set for Barcelona race
Kenya’s Florence Kiplagat will target her own world record at the eDreams Barcelona Half Marathon when she lines up for the IAAF Silver Label Road Race on February 12.
The 29-year old has twice broken the world record at the event, clocking 1:05:12 in 2014 and then taking three seconds off that mark in 2015. She added a third consecutive victory in 2016, running a season’s best of 1:09:19.
Kiplagat went on to finish third at this year’s London Marathon before winning the Chicago Marathon in a season’s best of 2:21:32.
