The 23-year-old showcased her skills and kept checking her watch as though she wanted to lower her world record time. After covering 7km, Ngetich had opened up a wide gap between herself and competitors and was looking very strong.

Kimeli took charge of the race earlier in the race and it was evident that he would be the one to claim the top honours. He was looking very comfortable leading Sawe and his competitors throughout the race and his hard work eventually paid off with a win.
