Injury-plagued Emmanuel Korir ready to 'fight' to defend his world title

Korir has failed to impress since the start of the 2023 season due to his injury.

Despite an injury setback that has seen him struggle to make an impact since the 2023 season started, reigning World and Olympic 800m champion Emmanuel Korir is ready to fight as he seeks to defend his title at the World Championships in Budapest, Hungary.

The US-based athlete insisted that he cannot just sit and watch the title being snatched from him and he has promised to bring back something better.

“I’m going there for it (the title) …I’m very hungry. I am not going to let it go to someone else. We shall fight and definitely bring something better back home…that’s for sure,” Korir told Nation Sport.

Korir started off his outdoor season with an eight-place finish at the Diamond League Meeting in Rabat, Morocco where he fizzled out to finish eighth.

He then proceeded to the Diamond League Meeting in Paris, France where he also failed to impress by finishing 10th. Korir’s most recent race was at the Diamond League Meeting in Stockholm, Sweden, where he also finished a distant eighth.

As he heads to Budapest, he is bound to face a stern test from the upcoming duo of Djamel Sedjati and Slimane Moula who have done pretty well in the Diamond League Meetings this season.

Canada’s Marco Arop will also be in the mix seeking to improve on his third-place finish during last year’s World Championships in Eugene, Oregon.

Korir will enjoy the company of youngsters Emmanuel Wanyonyi and Kipng’etich Ngeno who will also be seeking to make a statement on the global stage.
