Posted by Maveriq

Long distance runner Cuthbert Nyasango has turned his focus on the IAAF World Championships which will be held in August in London. This follows a good showing by Nyasango at the Boston Marathon where he finished 14th. Nyasango has represented Zimbabwe at two previous Olympic Games, London 2012 and Rio de Janeiro last year. He has also represented Zimbabwe twice at the Word Championships,

Said Nyasango:

I think the major goal now is the World Championships coming in August in London. I am looking at improving my position. This time London is a good place to run, I have been there before.

This is my third World Championships, my first was in 2011, then 2015 and my best position was 16 in 2011. So I want to improve my position,

I think, as compared to those (times), I am at the right range . . . this year I ran two hours 17 minutes at Boston, being one of the toughest races. If we get the right and enough support, chances are very high I can improve my position.
