Uganda has scooped two medals at the Olympic Games in Tokyo this afternoon, thanks to star athletes Joshua Cheptegei and Jacob Kiplimo.
The two won Silver and Bronze in the men’s 10,000m race.
Cheptegei posted 27:43:63 to finish in the second position slightly behind Ethiopian Selemon Barega with 27:43:22, while Kiplimo completed the race in 27:43:88.
The two Ugandans put up a spirited and colourful finish to the games moving from the middle pack to challenge a combination of Kenyan and Ethiopian athletes to the finish line.
Earlier Ugandan Stephen Kissa led the pack through the first 16 laps before dropping out of the race alongside several other athletes.
