CHASING DREAM: Cheruiyot hits track in hunt for elusive Olympic gold
ATHLETICS By Bismarck Mutahi in Rio de Janeiro | August 12th 2016
Vivian Cheruiyot has won almost all global titles, but an Olympic gold is what is still missing in her trophy cabinet.
She competed at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, where she finished fifth in 10,000m and the 2012 Games in London where she won bronze behind Ethiopian Tirunesh Dibaba.
She also tried her luck in the 5,000m at the London Games but once again, the Olympic title was elusive with another Ethiopian Meseret Defar beating her to a gold medal spot.
Today at 11:00am (5:10pm Kenyan time), Vivian or ‘Pocket Rocket’ as she is known to her fans will be starting her chase for the elusive title and once again she will be meeting her.
