Kiplagat through to 2000m steeplechase final

15 Julio 2017

Two-time World Athletics Final bronze medallist Isaac Songok won the 2001 World Under-18 1,500m in Hungary in a CR of 3:36.78 while Benson Marrianyi and Samson Kiplangat went for a 1-2 feat at the 2003 Championships in Canada.

"It was an easy race, you know steeplechase is a Kenyan event, we will do everything to retain the title".

Russell lowered his own championships record in the 110m hurdles, dominating the field to win in 13.04 seconds ahead of Chinese Taipei's Hao-hua Lu, 13.41 and France's Thomas Wanaverbecq, 13.55.

In the girls' final, Shaquena Foote, 54.05, finished fifth behind winner Barbora Malikova, 52.74 from the Czech Republic; Kenya's Mary Moraa, 53.31; and Brazil's Giovana Dos Santos, 53.57.

In the final two laps, Chebet and Chepkrui led by almost 50m, making the gold win a Kenyan affair.

Kenya was back in business when Robert Kiptoo Biwott won during the 2013 competition held in Donetsk, Ukraine before Kumari Taki crushed Songok's CR in 2015 Cali, Colombia.

Already, Kenya is interested in hosting the IAAF World U20 and World championships based on the success of the current event in the country.

Jamaica's Antonio Watson (46.59s) crossed the line in pole position while Colby Jennings of the Turks and Caicos completed the podium in 46.77s.

Vidal became champion when reaching 7.88 meters, thus setting the season best record.

The Trinity Track Club runner moved into the finals but finished 8th in 14.62 seconds.

Intermediate hurdlers Sanique Walker and Rovane Williams qualified for their finals to be run tomorrow.
