    NAIROBI Rams Youth Jersey , Aug. 17 (Xinhua) -- Defending Chicago Marathon champions Abel Kirui and Florence Kiplagat of Kenya are plotting to run fast time in this year's event, which will be held on Oct. 8.

    Alongside the two champions, organisers have also lined up world record-holder Dennis Kimetto of Kenya, half marathon world record-holder Zersenay Tadese and three-time Olympic gold medalist Tirunesh Dibaba.

    "I want to improve my personal best and Chicago fast course could give me just that. The competition I have is strong and it will spur me forward to run faster," Kirui said on Thursday from Eldoret.

    Last year Rams Womens Jersey , it boiled down to tactics as Kirui held off compatriot Dickson Chumba to win by three seconds in 2:11:23.

    The two-time world champion has a personal best of 2:05:04 and finished fourth at this year's London Marathon in 2:07:45, his fastest time since winning the second of his world titles in 2011.

    Kimetto returns to Chicago for the first time since setting a course record of 2:03:45 in 2013.

    Prior to that, he ran the fastest marathon debut in history in Berlin in 2012 (2:04:16) and in 2014 he became the first athlete in history to cover the marathon within 2:03, clocking a world record of 2:02:57 in Berlin.

    An ankle and knee injury sustained in training early this year forced Kimetto out of Boston marathon and the 35-year-old will be keen to improve his fitness in Chicago.

    Tadese, a six-time world champion on the roads and cross-country Black Rams Jersey , has only finished three marathons.

    While his official personal best is 2:10:41, the 2004 Olympic 10,000m bronze medallist ran 2:06:51 in the Breaking2 marathon so will be looking to replicate that kind of form in Chicago.

    Kenya's Stephen Sambu made his marathon debut in Chicago in 2016, finishing fifth in 2:13:35. With PBs of 26:54.61 for 10,000m and 1:00:41 for the half marathon Rams Jersey Sale , it would appear the 29-year-old is capable of significantly improving his marathon PB.

    Japanese quartet Kohei Mastsumura, Yuki Takamiya, Chihiro Miyawaki and Ryoichi Matsuo add further strength to this year's field.

    Matsumara is the fastest of the four, having set a PB of 2:08:09 at the 2014 Tokyo Marathon. Kiplagat returns to chase her third title in a row and her fourth podium finish.

    The 2010 world half marathon champion has a marathon PB of 2:19:44 and held the half marathon world record until earlier this year.

    Dibaba started 2017 by becoming the third-fastest woman of all time when she finished second in London in 2:17:56. Dibaba is a three-time Olympic gold medallist, a five-time world champion on the track and a four-time winner of senior titles at the World Cross.

    She made her marathon debut in 2014 with a third-place finish in London in 2:20:35. More recently Cheap Rams Jersey , she took the silver medal in the 10,000m at the IAAF World Championships London 2017.

    BEIJING, Jan. 13 (Xinhua) -- It's not easy being a taxi driver in China. Long hours and low pay often leave drivers feeling frustrated and angry, which eventually rubs off on customer service.

    The growing frustration in the taxi industry was brought to the spotlight in recent weeks after drivers in several cities went on strike, including in Shenyang Rams Jamon Brown Jersey , Nanjing, and Jinan.

    In the most recent strike, hundreds of drivers in east China's Jinan city suspended service, with taxi drivers citing unrealistic high franchise fees amid pressures from new ride-calling apps used by Internet firms and car-rental companies.

    In China, a majority of taxi drivers are required to rent authorized taxis from commercial companies. In order to do so they pay rental fees which are often described as exorbitant. Unauthorized private vehicles are banned from the taxi market on concerns of security and market order.

    In the past Rams Rob Havenstein Jersey , taxi drivers have demanded an increase in base fares and lowered franchise fees collected by taxi companies. But car-calling apps that affect their business are also under fire, stoking concerns of a looming change in how the industry operates with mobile Internet technology. Limited services monopolized by a handful of taxi firms are increasingly failing to meet the demand of an expanding urban population.

    An online survey launched since Sunday by Xinhua News Agency on its website has found more than 70 percent of respondents feel it is difficult to hail a taxi in Chinese cities.

    Of almost 200 respondents that took part in the survey as of Tuesday, 75 percent believe market monopoly is the major cause to the sector's tension and poor services, such as long wait periods or being refused rides.

    Due to these unsatisfactory experiences, 77 percent of the respondents say it is highly necessary to break the monopoly. Meanwhile Rams Tyler Higbee Jersey , they are looking forward to new services enabled by mobile Internet technology.

    According to the Xinhua survey, 25 percent of respondents say they regularly use ride-call apps. Another 21 percent say they are using such services occasionally.

    Taxi-hailing apps such as Kuaidi Dache and Didi Dache, rolled out by Alibaba and Tencent respectively, are gaining popularity among users. By connecting passengers with drivers, the two firms account for almost 99 percent of the market with 154 million registered users in more than 300 Chinese cities.
