HONOURS:

BIO:

Isaiah Koech was born on December 19th 1993 in Kericho District.

Since he won the 2009 World Youth Championship over 3 000m in Bressanone (Italy); Isaiah « Chairman » Koech makes rare public appearance.

Consequently every time he runs; the results are impressive : 4th at the 2010 World Cross Country Championship (Junior race) as well as World Champion with the Kenya team; 2010 World Junior # 2 over 5 000m; fourth man to run 5 000m indoor under 13 minutes in Dusseldorf, beating former 5 000m World Champion Eliud Kipchoge; 2011 National Junior cross country Champion; 2011 National Champion over 5000m; 4th at the 2011 World Championship over 5 000m…  and it is just starting…

More recently we saw him crush the field at the 2011 Loto Cross Cup in Brussels – same place he made things rough for Sergiy Lebid the previous year -, finishing 45 seconds ahead of Atelaw Bekele 2011 European XC Champion

Like last year he will starts his indoor season on february 10th in Dusseldorf over 5 000m before heading back to Kenya, doing some cross country and then putting in a lot of hard work towards his main objective: The Olympic Games.
