Uganda’s Jacob Kiplimo won the gold medal in the 10,000M event at the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, United Kingdom, a news report by Kawowo sports, an online news agency.
The Ugandan had the fastest time of 27:09:19 to win gold and set the new Commonwealth record over 10,000M distance.
Kiplimo out-sprinted Kenya’s Daniel Simiu Ebenyo with an accelerating final kick after the bell.

This is Uganda’s second gold medal at the games after Victor Kiplangat’s feat in the Marathon last Sunday.
