Peres Jepchirchir will return to the New York Metropolis Marathon in 2022


Olympic gold medallist and 2021 New York Metropolis Marathon champion Peres Jepchirchir of Kenya will return to defend her title on the NYC marathon on Nov. 6, 2022, the New York Street Runners (NYRR) introduced this week. Jepchirchir is the one athlete on the earth who has gained the Olympic marathon, the New York Metropolis Marathon and the Boston Marathon (which she did this yr).

When she gained New York final November, Jepchirchir grew to become the primary Olympic champion to win this marathon. 

Jepchirchir has a protracted string of world information to her title; she gained the Ottawa 10K in 2016 earlier than happening to set the ladies’s half-marathon world report on the 2017 RAK Half-Marathon (her first world report), in 1:05:06. In 2020, she smashed the women-only half-marathon world report at Prague, in 1:05:34, and the next month she broke it once more in Poland on the world half-marathon championships, the place she took the win in 1:05:16. In 2021 she pulled away from world marathon record-holder Brigid Kosgei in Tokyo to take Olympic gold in 2:27:20, earlier than happening to win New York in November.

The massive query is whether or not Olympic gold medallist Eliud Kipchoge will race New York this yr. The GOAT of marathon working has mentioned he’d wish to win all six Abbott World Main marathons, having already bagged Chicago, Tokyo, London (4 occasions) and Berlin (3 times; he set the world report right here in 2018).
