Last night, at the first night of Pre Classic, Celliphine Chepteek Chespol won the steeplechase, beating the Olympic champion and world record holder, Ruth Jebet. Celliphine is 19 years old and set her own U20 world record of 8:58.78! And, she lost her shoe and put it back on, during the race.
In fourth place, Emma Coburn, the Olympic bronze medalist, just missed the AR with her 9:07.96. The steeplechase is a fun event, full of history, barriers and drama. Remember to watch it this summer on the world circuit.
