Now is the time to act, says Olympic gold medallist David Rudisha
Kenyan middle-distance runner and two-time Olympic gold medallist David Rudisha has said that ‘now is the time to act’ on climate change.
Speaking at a recent UN Sports for Climate Action event, Rudisha highlighted the impact of climate change on his community in Kilgoris, Kenya and on the track.
“When it comes to training and preparation, temperature change is an issue. We have seen that even in high altitudes we now have high temperatures. This is a critical concern because we still want to perform well and break more records,” he told The Nation.
