NAIROBI - Kenya's former triple world cross-country champion Edith Masai has her sights on a medal in the marathon at the 2008 Beijing Olympics and plans to retire the year after.
"I have seen it all, three world cross-country golds, good performances in the Golden League and I think time is up for me," Masai, 40, said on Saturday after finishing second in a women's 8km cross-country race in Nairobi.
"I will focus on the Olympic Games in Beijing, where I want to finish among the top three, then call it quits the following year," she said. "I have achieved all except an Olympics medal." Masai, who won the 4km race at the world cross-country championships from 2002 to 2004, will compete in the Singapore Marathon on December 2 and the London race in April.
The Kenyan, who only took up running seriously in 1999 after splitting from her husband, won her debut marathon in Hamburg in 2005. - Reuters
