This year's World champion in 10000m and cross country concluded his impressive 2019 season with a new 10K World recrod of 26 minutes and 36 seconds.
"World Cross champion in Denmark, 10,000m world champion in Doha and now the world record here in Valencia. What a year it has been. I can’t believe it, " Cheptegei said.
Cheptegei clocked 13:24 for the first 5km, then he went on to run a blazing 13 minutes and 12 second in second half to shave 6 seconds off the World record set by Kenya’s Leonard Patrick Komon in 2010.
“I knew that Valencia was going to be a really fast course, one of the fastest in the world. So to get to achieve what we came here for is something really special. This year has made me so happy.”
