Meanwhile, on the women’s side, Jeruto ran a time of 30:35 for a three-second win and finally secured top honor among the medalists after claiming a podium spot on her three previous appearances in Valencia.

The 2011 world U18 2000m steeplechase champion became the instant race favorite after Ethiopia’s Yalemzerf Yehualaw was forced to withdraw after testing positive for Covid-19 earlier in the week.

Norway’s European cross country champion Karoline Bjerkeli Grovdal was the runner-up to Jeruto on Sunday and she ran 30:38 for her second-quickest ever time, while Gladys Chepkurui also broke 31:00 when completing the podium spots in 30:48.
