5km run in 12min 35sec – New world record!

Uganda’s Joshua Cheptegei smashed the 5,000m world record with a 12min 35.35sec run last Friday 14 Aug 2020!

This is especially impressive because his training this year was affected by Covid-19 restrictions. He was helping his grandparents on their farm and helping with painting works during the Covid-19 lockdown. This is definitely an impressive return to the tracks!
