“Am proud of her and this is a biggest achievement in her career ,I was sure it was only a matter of time before she broke the 8 year record as she has been very consistent in her performances.

As the Athletics Kenya fraternity we are happy and proud of her performance which I feel is a big morale boaster ahead of her world title defense in Hungary in August and to her  counterparts who will be competing in Hungary.”
