VIDEO: I want my wife back- Asbel Kiprop pleads for forgiveness after viral explicit video

By Kelley Boss | September 18th 2018

Three-time World 1,500 metres champion Asbel Kiprop has admitted that he made a mistake and says he wants his wife back.

Speaking during an interview on Switch TV, Asbel said the woman he was cheating on his wife with also had an affair with another man so he had to come out clean to his wife.

The 29-year old athlete said his wife of six years had walked out of their matrimonial home in Eldoret after a video of his escapades with his lover leaked on social media.

“At the moment they (the woman) are in good terms with the husband but I have a problem because my wife is running away but I want to bring her back.

I told her that I was confessing to something that she didn’t know for two years. You didn’t catch me,” he said.

Kiprop said he wants his family back and to get another chance to return to the track and show his prowess.

In the interview he revealed details of how the woman used to lure him to sneak out of training camp to spend time with her during the steamy affair that lasted for two years.

The frequent distractions made his form to dip and he started under-performing on the track.

“She was also cheating on me I am sorry to say, so (by shooting the video) I was confessing to the man (my best friend) and the society of my wrongdoings.” Kiprop explained during the interview.

“The bible says confess your sins so you shall be forgiven. I saw the tribulations that I was undergoing and I thought maybe there is a sin that I committed. I remember in 2015 I had a very good season (on the track).”

He became a trending topic following the release of a damning video – showing him kissing and groping a woman in his car.

The video, which immediately went viral, shows Asbel in his car with a half-naked lady, who appears to whine her waist for the camera as he busks in the excitement.

The lady, who was identified as Nancy Rotich, is said to be married to Asbel’s confidant and training partner Andrew Chepsiya.

She allegedly tried to commit suicide after the athlete leaked the video, swallowing pesticide at her house in Koinet, Eldoret.
