I have spent 10 good years competing on the track. 9 out of 10 seasons I broke 13:00 on the 5000m.
It's the distance which has been crucial for my career and has helped me to become the athlete I am today.
I believe in long term careers where a great career in Track & Field can be translated to a great career on the marathon.
I hope future athletes will have the possibility to follow this exact same path in their careers.
I am honoured to be awarded the @laureussport Academy Excellent Achievement award last night.
