Joshua Cheptegei on Sunday evening won gold posting 26:48.36 to become Uganda’s first Men’s 10,000m champion.

Since making the top 10 places over the long-distance double at the 2016 Rio Olympics, Cheptegei’s target was: “Try get the 5000m and 10000m titles in Doha 2019 and then do the same again, God willing at Tokyo 2020 Olympics,” he remarked in a recent interview.
