Joshua Cheptegei started his 2021 season by winning the 5km Monaco Run on Sunday. He clocked 13:11 to retain the Monaco Run title.
Last year, Cheptegei won the 5km race for the first time, setting a new world record of 12:51. He smashed it while also bettering his own personal best by a whopping 33 seconds.
His world record in Monaco came just a few weeks before the season was put on hold due to COVID-19, but when Cheptegei made his comeback in August, he was in similar form.
He broke a second world record also in Monaco in the 5,000m race, posting an incredible time of 12:35.36. Two months later, Cheptegei broke his third record of the year at a 10,000m race in Valencia, Spain, where he hammered out a remarkable 26:11.00 result.
