Jubilation As Kiplimo Wins World Half Marathon Title

 

By Exposed Uganda

Uganda has done it again! Jacob Kiplimo has won the World Half Marathon title, in a championship record 58:49 in Gdynia, Poland.

That means another Gold for Uganda from the silver medalist.

The absence of four-time champion Geoffrey Kamworor proved detrimental as Kenya relinquished the World Half Marathon men’s title to Kiplimo.

Kenya’s Kibiwott Kandie, who is the world leader and is unbeaten in four races this year, finished second in a time of 58:54 after unsuccessfully trying to keep up with the Ugandan’s pace.

The Ugandan World Cross Country silver medalist proved to have the final bit of gas in the tank, outsprinting Kandie in the final kilometre and going it all alone to take the title to Uganda.
