Nairobi, Jan 8 (CNMSports) - World 1500m silver medallist Timothy Cheruiyot of Kenya will not be taking part in any competition until after the Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast, Australia in April.
Cheruiyot on Sunday said that he has suspended all competition to focus his energies on polishing his skills and building his endurance despite having dominated the IAAF cross country permit meeting this season, reports Xinhua news agency.
Cheruiyot's focus will now turn to Kenya's trials next month for the Commonwealth Games. "I won't race before then. I hope to go to the Commonwealth Games," Cheruiyot said on Sunday.
