World’s Fastest Half Marathoner 2013 & Elite Runners Visit Nike Store in New Delhi

New Delhi: Today, Nike athletes Geoffrey Kipsang, Lineth Chepkurui and Meseret Hailu visited Nike’s running destination door in Connaught Place, New Delhi to prepare themselves for the half marathon in Delhi on Sunday. The World’s fastest half marathoner this year, Geoffrey Kipsang, will be competing this weekend and ran a time of 58.54 during a half marathon in UAE earlier this year.

Nike’s deep heritage in running innovation and power of building on athlete insights forms a lasting impression on Kipsang who aims to close out 2013 with another strong performance this weekend. “Nike always listens to athlete input and that ultimately translates into a better running shoe that enables me to perform at my best,” said Geoffrey Kipsang. “I’ve had a great year and running in the Nike Zoom Streak 4 has definitely given my performance an edge. I hope to carry this success into Sunday’s race in New Delhi.”


Speaking from the store, Avinash Pant, Marketing Director- Nike India Pvt. Ltd. said “Nike is a running company and we are delighted to host some of our finest athletes from across the globe here today. We believe in serving the best athletes in the sport, not just elite athletes but also everyday athletes. We wish these runners a great run this Sunday in Delhi”.
