Stephen Kiprotich has pulled out of the 2016 Delhi Half Marathon which takes place on Sunday, November 20th.

The London 2012 Olympic Games gold medalist and 2013 world champion Kiprotich told URN that he decided to pull out because of family challenges. “I am still mourning the death of my father and my mother is currently admitted in hospital,” said  Kiprotich.

Kiprotich last appeared at the Rio Olympics in Brazil where he finished a distant 16th in the marathon, failing to defend his title.

In Kiprotich's absence 12,000 runners including Olympic marathon gold medalist Eliud Kipchoge from Kenya, world half marathon champion Peres Jepchirchir, half marathon specialist Worknesh Degefa will all take part.

Jamaica's sprinter and three times world record holder, Asafa Powell has been listed as the brand ambassador for the event sponsored by Airtel.
