Uganda’s long-distance runner Jacob Kiplimo has won another gold medal at the ongoing 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.
Kiplimo won the men’s 10,000m title breaking gold medalist Joshua Cheptegei’s 10,000m record in a stunning time of 27:09:19 on Tuesday evening at Alexander Stadium in Birmingham, United Kingdom.
“I think for me winning this Commonwealth Games title was everything, the most important thing for me this season,” said Kiplimo while speaking after winning the race Tuesday night. “But I still have a lot of things to do in the future at the Olympics and world championships,” added Kiplimo.
The 21 year old Jacob Kiplimo who took bronze at the recent world championships has commandingly continued Uganda’s tradition of winning the men’s 10,000m final at the Commonwealth Games.
He finished ahead of Kenyan pair Daniel Simiu Ebenyo and Kibiwott Kandie.
Kiplimo has eight major championship medals in seven years. He is the reigning World Half Marathon champion as well as the world record holder, having run 57.31 over 21K in Lisbon in November, 2021.
His win means Uganda has won five times in a row since 2006, bringing the country’s medal tally to two at the ongoing Commonwealth Games.
In 2006, Boniface Kiprop triumphed in Melbourne followed by Moses Kipsiro who won the title in Delhi (2010) and defended it in Glasgow (2014) before Joshua Cheptegei won it in Gold Coast in 2018.
Three-time Commonwealth champion, Moses Kipsiro, 35, has revealed that he has never received his gift from the president. Kipsiro disclosed the car was picked from Victoria Motors by individuals from State House but seven years later he has not had any breakthrough in tracing the individuals who picked the car.
Kipsiro was rewarded with a car by President Museveni for making the country proud when he struck gold for Uganda in the 10,000-metre race during the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland.
Kipsiro explained that in 2014, upon his return to Dublin for treatment on his knee injury, he received a call from Victoria Motors informing him that the car promised to him from State House had been released. Kipsiro had decided to give up on the car as he struggled with injuries and oother personal set backs which frustrated him further.
Former state minister for sports Charles Bakkabulindi has expressed committment to assist Kipsiro get a Toyota Pajero car, which President Museveni gifted the athlete after his gold medal triumph.
Bakkabulindi noted that several sportsmen and women have benefited from President Museveni’s prerogative to reward success over the last 10 years.
In fact, recently Joshua Cheptegei, Peruth Chemutai, Stephen Kiprotich and Jacob Kiplimo, who won medals at the 2020 were rewarded for their international success received their brand new double-cabin pickups.
So, who took Kipsiro’s car?
