What the autopsy reveals about Kelvin Kiptum’s death

Kenyan Kelvin Kiptum, who died in a traffic accident on February 11, smashed the men’s world record of 2 hours 35 seconds in the Chicago Marathon six months ago.

His death plunged an entire continent into an unprecedented distance.

The tragedy also claimed the life of his Rwandan coach.

On Wednesday February 21, an autopsy revealed that the 24-year-old marathon runner had succumbed to severe head injuries.

The late star runner will be buried in his home village on Friday, in a ceremony expected to be attended by Kenyan President William Ruto.
