Golden boy Joshua Cheptegei has teamed up with fresh athletic star Jacob Kiplimo to lead team Uganda to the half marathon championships scheduled for Saturday 17th October 2020 in Gdynia, Poland.

Cheptegei has written more history in Ugandan athletics in the recent past as we have seen him land back to the Pearl Of Africa with gold more than once and his latest victory being the world 5000 metre-record he broke at the Diamond League Meeting in Monaco, France in July with a 12:35:36 finish.
