Paul Malakwen Kosgei Biography

Paul Malakwen Kosgei is a famous Marathon Runner, who was born on April 22, 1978 in Kenya. Paul Malakwen Kosgei (born 22 April 1978 in Marakwet) is a Kenyan long-distance and marathon runner. He first came to prominence in athletics by taking the World Junior Record of 3000m steeple in 1997, and later with consecutive medals at the IAAF World Cross Country Championships from 1998 to 2000. According to Astrologers, Paul Malakwen Kosgei's zodiac sign is Taurus.

He went unbeaten over the distance at the 2002 African Championships in Athletics the following month, beating John Cheruiyot Korir to the continental title. As African champion, he was selected to represent the continental at the 2002 IAAF World Cup. He took the 5000 metres silver medal behind the reigning European champion Alberto García (who was banned in 2003 for taking EPO). Among Kosgei’s other honours that year was a silver medal from the World Military Track and Field Championships.

In 1999 he started his technical collaboration with the Italian Coach Renato Canova, that changed his event, looking at longer distances.

The 2002 marked a significant breakthrough for Kosgei in both track and road running. In May, he led the Kenyan team to victory at the 2002 IAAF World Half Marathon Championships with a time of 1:00:39. He edged out Jaouad Gharib to win the race on his first attempt at the half marathon distance. His first time success did not make him an immediate convert, however: “I have changed my focus from the steeplechase to the 10,000 metres … Maybe in two or three years I will start to think about running the marathon”. Kosgei became the Kenyan champion over 10,000 m that summer, and his next test came at the 2002 Commonwealth Games in Manchester, England. He was entered into the 10,000 m race and was second behind his Kenyan compatriot Wilberforce Talel – Kosgei’s finishing time of 27:45.46 was seven hundredths of a second behind Talel, who broke the Games record for the event.
