The 29-year-old who cruised into the final with 13:24.56 owns the fastest time in 2022 at 12:46.33 and if he’s able to find his best form again he will certainly be in good standings for the gold medal.

Kipkorir, however, will have to fend off the expected challenge of the Olympic champion, Joshua Cheptegei of Uganda who has the fastest personal best overall among the entrants in the final. Cheptegei will also be seeking to complete the long-distance double after copping the gold medal in the 10,000m earlier at the championships.

Among the other featured starters in the start list for the men’s 5000m finals here at the World Athletics Championships 2022 are Ethiopia’s Selemon Barega, the Olympic 10,000m champion who was second in the 5000m at the last world championships in Doha in 2019, as well as Norway’s Olympic 1500m champion Jakob Ingebrigtsen, who was defeated in that discipline on Tuesday (19).
