Cheserek wants to run for the USA

World leading runner in indoor mile distance Edward Cheserek of Kenya said he has no intention of competing for his country and will buy his time to get approval to represent USA at global championships.

Cheserek, who competed at a high level last weekend over the mile and in the 3,000m, become only the fourth person to run under three minutes and 50 seconds in the mile distance under indoor conditions.

On Friday, the Kenyan posted the second-fastest indoor time in history by clocking 3:49.44 to win the mile race in Boston.

But with the World Indoor Championships in Birmingham City just two weeks away, Cheserek ruled himself out of contention for his Kenyan team. “I have no intention of representing Kenya in international competition,” he said on Tuesday. XINHUANET
