Sabastian Kimaru Sawe

« You see Sabastian. He’s very calm. But when he runs… », Claudio Baradelli, coach

Sabastian Kimaru Sawe is a Kenyan long-distance runner born in 1996. In March 2022, he set a record in the Rome-Ostia half-marathon in 58 minutes 02 seconds. But the race was not officially registered and therefore could not be used as a record. Some time later, he set his best official time at the Royal Night Half Marathon in Bahrain in 58 minutes 58 seconds, a half marathon which he also won.
In September 2022, Sabastian set the Kenyan national one-hour record at the Memorial Van Damme with a distance covered of 21,250 meters, narrowly missing out on the world record.



Amos Kipruto

« Amos is in the perfect combination between having enough experience and still very fresh. », Claudio Baradelli, coach

Born in 1992 in the country recognized as the birthplace of the marathon, where the art of running has reached new heights, Amos Kipruto is a marathon runner firmly established in his sport. Winner of numerous marathons, including those in Rome, Seoul and more recently London in 2022, the athlete is a serious contender for the podium at the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.
