Kenya’s double world 5,000 meters and 10,000 champion Vivian Cheruiyot is expecting her first child and will not be defending her titles in Moscow this summer, the runner said Wednesday.

“I am very happy to announce that I will take some time off from athletics this year as I am pregnant with my first child. I have been running for many years, and at 29, feel that now is the right time to start a family,” Cheruiyot said in a statement.
