Training for Olympic glory in Kenyan town
Athletes exercise in the early morning in the sports ground of the University of Eldoret in western Kenya, March 21, 2016. In Kenya's western town of Iten, known as the "Home of Champions" for drawing runners to train from around the world, athletes rise to pound the track and dirt roads at dawn. Kenyan athletics champions like marathon world record holder Dennis Kimetto and 800 meter champion David Rudisha have trained there, alongside Britain's double Olympic and world champion Mo Farah and a host of others. At 2,400 meters (7,900 feet), the altitude makes Iten an ideal location for established middle and long distance races to build their endurance and stamina. [Photo/Agencies]
