Chepngetich bags steeplechase gold

26 August 2014, 23:01

Nanjing - Rosefline Chepngetich won the 2000m steeplechase event at the Youth Olympics in Nanjing, China on Monday.

Her time of 6.22.07 was nowhere near her personal best, but was enough for the 17-year-old to finish well in front of Ethiopia's Zwedenesh Mamo (6:26.02) and Hungary's Lili Anna Toth (6:31.92).

Chepngetich's gold medal was the second Kenya won at the Games so far.

Earlier, both Amos Kirui and Winfred Mbithe won silver in the men's 2000m steeplechase and women's 1,500m races, respectively.

Kirui was unable to match the kick of Ethiopia's Wegebe Sebsibe (5:38.42) and finished the race in 5:40.29, just in front of Morroco's Hicham Chemlal (5:40.94).

Mbithe posted a time of 4:17.91 to finish in second place ahead Abdulkadir Gosa's 4:18.36.

Kokebe Tesfaye won the race in 4:15.38.
