As the reigning Commonwealth Games champion, Moraa has undeniably dominated the two-lap race throughout this season. Her impressive journey began with a remarkable triumph at the Kipchoge Keino Classic in May, where she crossed the finish line with a remarkable time of 1:58.83. Moraa continued her impressive performance at the Rabat Diamond League later the same month, clocking an extraordinary 1:58.72. Her remarkable momentum continued with consecutive victories in Lausanne in June (1:57.43) and Chorzow, Poland, in July (1:56.85).

With her confidence soaring and her physical condition at its peak, Moraa eagerly anticipates the upcoming challenge in Brussels. She expressed her enthusiasm, saying, “I’m eagerly looking forward to the race, and I’m fully committed to ending the year on a high note while bringing pride to my nation. My recent world title win has only added to my motivation to reach even greater heights.”

As the defending Diamond League champion, Moraa already has her sights set on the grand finale scheduled in Eugene, Oregon, on September 16-17. There, a potential rematch against the USA’s bronze medallist, Athing Mu, could provide a thrilling showdown. Moraa commented on the possibility, stating, “I hope she chooses to compete. She is a formidable rival, and I am resolute in my desire to secure victory on her home turf.”
