“Mohawk” Ezekiel Kemboi Does It Again By Winning 3000m Steeple Chase For The 3rd Time In A Row

Kenyan Ezekiel Kemboi defeated youngster Kipruto to win GOLD for the 3rd time in a row in the world athletics championship in Moscow Russia.

Kemboi of Kenya celebrates his victory in the men's 3000 metres steeplechase final of the IAAF World Athletics Championships at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow

The 31-year-old, sporting a mohawk hairstyle, clocked 8:06:01 with Kipruto, 18, chasing him home in 8:06.37. Frenchman Mahiedine Mekhissi-Benabbad repeated his bronze from Daegu to deny Kenya a podium sweep with Paul Kipsiele Koech placed fourth.

The four Kenyans in the final dictated the pace of the race from the gun to the bell. Benabbad looked threatening around the home turn but Kemboi simply went up a gear and burst away, allowing himself to slow up towards the line with gold secure.

Kenya are the dominant force in men’s steeplechasing with twice Olympic champion Kemboi laying strong claim to be the best yet to emerge from the east African nation, although Moses Kiptanui also won three successive world title between 1991-1995. (Reuters)
