High School and Education

The two-time Olympian attended Arnesen High School while growing up in Eldoret.

After high school, he moved to the USA after accepting a scholarship to study at Iowa State University.

He earned his bachelor’s degree in accounting from Iowa State University and again enrolled in the same university for a Master’s degree in the same field.

Career (US Army, and Olympics)

Bor started his career in track and field in his high school days.

In high school, he competed in steeplechase events along with long jump and pole vault. He even was the district long jump and pole vault champion.

Because of his athletic skills, he was offered a sports scholarship and moved to the USA.

In the USA, he competed at Iowa State University before joining the US Army and competing for them.

During his career as a collegiate and a soldier athlete, Bor has won many events.

He is the World Athletic Champion of 2017 and has won many second and third places in the events organized by the NCAA.

Besides all these successes, Bor also made it to the Olympics twice.

His first time was at the 2016 Rio Olympics, where things got complicated.

During the trial games for the 2016 Rio Olympics, the Nike Bowerman team filed complaints and protested against Bor, mentioning that his elbow made contact with Andy Bayet, which hindered not only Bayet but even other Bowerman athletes.

Despite the uproar, the protest was dismissed, and Bor secured his place in the national team after coming into the second palace during the 3000m steeplechase.

He then represented the USA in the Olympics but couldn’t win any medals as he came in seventh position.

With the experience of the 2016 Olympics, Bor again tried for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and again made it to the national team after winning the trial event.

He was one of the most anticipated American athletes to win a medal at the Olympics, but even this time, he finished in the nineteenth position and returned empty-handed.
