Junior champion and current world leader in 3000m steeplechase, Conseslus Kipruto, is having a dream season. And he told us about it at the press conference in Ostrava. What else did he say?

…1st time in Ostrava
I came to Ostrava for the 1st time and I want to win. Not only to win but also I want to break the meeting record and junior record.

…about being a world leader?
This season is my dream season. After Youth and junior titles last years I want to win a senior title at World Championships in Moscow. But now I am focusing on Ostrava and then on Kenya trails, where are only two open positions for Moscow and I would like to get one of it.

... goals for Golden Spike?
Last year I did not get to Olympic Games, which was very disappointed for me. But now I have a great training group and I am in good shape. I am getting better and better. I would like to run under eight minutes, break meeting record and try to break junior world record. I will do my best no matter of weather conditions.

... about his first steps with athletics?
Nobody from my family has ever run before, so I have started with athletics just in 2009. Till this time I just played football and volleyball.
