Kipsang eyeing New York marathon double


NEW YORK: Kenya’s Wilson Kipsang will aim to bring the curtain down on a disappointing season on Sunday with a successful defense of his New York Marathon crown through the streets of the Big Apple. Former world record holder Kipsang began 2015 in buoyant mood after clinching victory in New York 12 months ago but the promise of that win failed to materialize over a frustrating year. In April he was beaten into second place by compatriot Eliud Kipchoge in the London Marathon and then touched rock bottom in August at the World Championships in Beijing where he was forced to abandon.
