Kenya's Cheruiyot eager to return to form in Oregon

(MENAFN- Gulf Times) Former world 5,000m and 10,000m champion and Olympic medallist Vivian Cheruiyot seeks a return to form when she competes in her first track race in nearly two years at the Pre;s two-time world indoor champion, Genzebe Dibaba on Friday.

"The Ethiopians have always been my tough competitors," said Cheruiyot, whose on-track rivalry with Dibaba's elder sister, Tirunesh, and her compatriot Meseret Defar helped to light up the women's distance running in the past.

Cheruiyot will compete in Eugene, fresh from her victory in the inaugural women's FNB 12km race in Cape Town on May 17.
