Geoffrey KIPSANG - Kenya - Silver medal at 2015 World Championships in 10,000m.

Kipsang leads the men's 10,000 metres final with 6 laps to complete followed by Tanui and

race winner Farah behind. Geoffrey took the lead at the bell but Mo's finishing

speed was too strong. His vest says Kamworor.  His full name is Geoffrey Kipsang Kamworor.

Until Beijing he was better known as a road runner and for his cross country successes.
