|NAIROBI Nike Air Force 1 Flyknit , Aug. 29 (Xinhua) -- Former two-time world marathonchampion Abel Kirui of Kenya has dismissed critics, saying heremains strong to retain his Chicago marathon title on October8.
Kirui, 35, missed out on the podium finish at the LondonMarathon in April and wants to remedy that disappointingperformance with a fast run in Chicago.
However, Kirui has ruled out going for the world record on thefast Chicago course, but will welcome running another personal besttime.
"I had high expectations for London marathon. It was a strongperformance and finishing fourth was a good attempt. But now thatis past. I must focus on defending my title in Chicago Nike Air Force 1 Mid ," Kirui saidon Tuesday from Eldoret.
"Prior to London Marathon I suffered a hip injury while intraining and I competed not at 100 percent. It has since healed andam enjoying training here in Eldoret. I had a tendon injury twomonths ago but I took my time, it's now fully healed."
Kirui's strong kick and change of tact was enough to see himfend off a late surge from then defending champion DicksonChumba.
But there will be no love lost when the Kirui faces one of thestrongest field ever assembled on Oct. 8 as he remains optimistiche will prove his performance was no fluke.
"It is true before last year win in Chicago, I had a lot ofinjuries. But I am now fine and looking forward to challenge forthe medal. I have been injury free this season and hopefully thatwill see me reap the dividends with another win in Chicago," hesaid.
Chumba will not be back to try and reclaim his crown, but thatdoes not mean that Kirui will have a walk in the pack to win hissecond title in Chicago.

His last conquest was in Berlin, 2014 when he set a WR of2:02.57. There will also be Stephen Sambu from Kenya. In hismarathon debut last year, Sambu clocked 2:13.35 for fifth place
Athens 2004 Olympics bronze medalist Zersenay Tadese, ofEritrea, could spoil the party for Kirui given his speed over the10 Nike Air Force 1 Low ,000m and the half marathon (WR 58:23).
After retiring from the track, Tadese has only finished threemarathons; London 2010 and 2012 and the Nike Breaking2marathon.
