We are deeply shocked and saddened by the news of the death of Kelvin Kiptum and his coach Gervais Hakizimana. Both died last Sunday in a traffic accident in Kenya. Kelvin, only 24 years old, leaves behind his wife and two children. Our thoughts are with his family and we wish them much strength and comfort during this difficult period.
Kelvin Kiptum (24), the world record holder in the marathon, would appear at the start of the NN Marathon Rotterdam in April. In the run-up to this, we got to know Kelvin, in addition to being an athlete, as a very nice and modest person.
To keep the memory of Kelvin Kiptum alive and support his family and community, Golazo is launching the Kelvin Kiptum Foundation. The fund will predominantly provide continued financial support for education, infrastructure and the support of young marathon runners in Kenya. Donate via the button below.Read more
