Record-breaking Kenyan distance runner Agnes Tirop was found dead on Wednesday with stab wounds to her stomach in a suspected homicide, athletics officials said.

Police said they were on the hunt for her husband over the incident at Tirop’s home in the high-altitude training hub of Iten in western Kenya.

Tirop, 25, was a fast-rising athlete – a double world 10 000m bronze medallist and 2015 world cross county champion who also finished fourth in the 5 000m at the Tokyo Olympics this year.

Only last month, she smashed the women-only 10km world record at the Road to Records Event in Germany, with a time of 30:01.
