It was only in June this year that Sable managed to improve in the Diamond League from 8:12.48. Sable said that my plan for the last 2000 meters saw Kenyans Abraham Kibivot, Amos Serem and Consueslas Kipruto. As he entered the last two kilometres, I tried more and moved on. He told that in the last jump of the water, I stumbled a little, it was because the boy in front of me had come out a little. That’s why they can’t complain, he said. Meanwhile, Kibivot, who won the gold medal in this competition, also praised Sable. After the race both hugged each other. Kibivot also patted Sable on the shoulder. Kenyan player Kibivot said that we ran well together, I tried to increase my speed in the last lap. Sable is strong enough, I was watching him get closer on the screen.
