    This lanky and affable man was such a talented athlete that the Kenyan armed forces could not wait for him to complete his secondary school to join them.

    Limo started his career running 400 metres races at his local primary schools, including Tuluobei primary, where Lornah Kiplagat also went to school.

    “Even in primary school, my teachers always wondered how I was able to take on senior boys and beat them in district and even provincial championships. By then, I already knew my future lay in running,” says Limo.
