BREAKING! Jacob Kiplimo Wins World Half Marathon, Breaks National Record

Uganda’s Jacob Kiplimo has just won the World Half Marathon Championship attaining a new national record of 58:49 in Gdynia, Poland. This record was broken with a staggering 10 seconds to spare.

Joshua Cheptegei was the 4th in his half marathon debut in 59:21, also making Uganda proud.

About a month ago, the teenager set a new 3000m Diamond league, Ugandan record when he clocked 7:26.64 over the seven-and-a-half-lap distance to not only smash Australia’s Ryan Gregson’s meet record of 7:42.19 by 1.55 seconds, but also improve his personal record over the distance by 17.9 seconds. The meet record had stood for 13 years.
