Let us nurture aspiring athletes, Cheruiyot

Renowned middle-distance runner Timothy Cheruyot has said there is a need to nurture young people’s talents in the athletics industry to succeed the current superstars, who have earned a name around the world, when their imminent retirement time comes.

Hailing from Singorwet in Bomet County, Cheruyot remains deeply connected to his roots, understanding the importance of giving back to his community.

In a recent event at Singorwet Secondary School, where he was launching a newly constructed assortment of buildings, the marathoner emphasized the significance of nurturing young talents and dreams at an early age.

“We have discovered that there are students with athletics talents in our schools. I have brought my manager to acknowledge that these students have the potential to become great athletes. Together with the school principals and the sports teachers, we will ensure that these students have the opportunity to train and pursue their dreams,” he said.

As a mentor to aspiring athletes in his community, Cheruyot continues to serve as a beacon of hope and inspiration to the young generation.

Cheruiyot’s commitment to excellence and passion for athletics make him a true role model for future generations.

He has set his sights on clinching the gold medal in the upcoming Olympics scheduled to be held in Paris starting from the 26th of July this year.

Filled with the relentless pursuit of excellence, he remains focused on clinching the coveted gold medal, not only for personal glory but to uplift and motivate others in his community and beyond.

Having secured a silver medal in the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, Japan, Cheruyot’s aspirations for gold reflect his unwavering determination and dedication to the art.
