Uganda’s best performance so far has come from 19-year-old Joshua Cheptegei who finished 6th in the 10,000m final won by Britain’s Mo Farah. He gets another shot when he runs his favourite race, the 5000m today.Cheptegei should easily make the final, but will hope for a slow semifinal so that he can reserve some energy for the final push. Together with 15-year-old Jacob Kiplimo, they go in heat 1 that also includes Mo Farah. Phillip Kipyeko runs in the 2nd heat.First five in each heat and the next 5 fastest from both heat, qualify. INTO FINAL: France’s Yoann Kowal (L), USA’s Donald Cabral (C) and Uganda’s Jacob Araptany (2ndR) compete in the Men’s 3000m Steeplechase Round 1 during the athletics event at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games at the Olympic Stadium in Rio de Janeiro on August 15, 2016.

The stats indicate that the best everyone else can do is deny the Kenyans the pride of sweeping all medals like they did in 1992 and 2004.France’s Mahiedine Mekhissi, who won his fourth European title last month, US champion Evan Jager, who booked his spot in the final with a win in his heat, and Uganda’s Araptany who came second in his heat, will attempt to spoil the Kenyan party.They will have to run close to this year’s season best time of 8:00.12 to do this. Araptany’s best in the race is 8:14.48 set in 2012.Going by pedigree and best times set this year, including 8:00.12 by youngster Conseslus Kipruto, the race will be won by either him, reigning Olympic champion Ezekiel Kemboi or  2008 Olympic champion Brimin Kipruto.last_img read more
