The Versatile Ugandan

Moses Kipsiro is one of the most versatile distance runners to ever hit the circuit. The Ugandan regularly rips it up during the cross country season and then blazes the 3000m and 5000m on the track. In 2009 he finished 2nd at the World Cross Country Champs and then ran a 7:30.95 PR over 3000m at Super Grand Prix in Monaco. At the 2008 Olympics in Beijing he just missed the podium, finishing 4th at 5000m.
