Distance double champion Cheruiyot to miss worlds

Distance double champion Cheruiyot to miss worlds

Defending 5,000- and 10,000-meter world champion Vivian Cheruiyot will miss the world championships in Moscow because of pregnancy.
The 29-year-old Kenyan long-distance runner said Wednesday she was expecting her first child later this year but insisted she planned to return to competitive running next season.
She still intends to recapture her world titles at the 2015 world championships in Beijing and continue her career at least until the 2016 Rio Olympics, when she will look for her first Olympic gold.
She took silver in the 5,000 and bronze in the 10,000 at last year's London Olympics.
