Description

The 2017 world cross country championship in Uganda has been lauded as one of the most successful events in the recent history of the championships. History was made at the Kololo independence grounds in Kampala when Irene Cheptai led a Kenyan women's squad to the first-ever top-six sweep at a World Cross Country Championships. Uganda's Jacob Kiplimo produced a performance of a lifetime to win gold in the Men's Under 20 race to give the country its first ever gold medal at a World Cross. Kenya also won the inaugural relays race during the event. Africa had more than half of the entire entry field- 312 athletes out of the 557 competitors who took part and claimed the top medals.
