  • Last month, Kosgei hit the world headlines again when she chalked the fastest time in half marathon when winning the Great North Run in 1:04:28 in Britain
  • Farah is fast establishing himself in marathon since his debut last year in London where he came third in a time of 2:06:22

Women’s defending champion Brigid Kosgei is the person to beat as compatriots Lawrence Cherono, Dickson Chumba and Bedan Karoki take the battle to Briton Mo Farah when Chicago Marathon goes down on Sunday.
