Anytime you get an athlete competing at an U20 Championship who is good enough to win gold at senior level, victory is typically a foregone conclusion, but despite the outstanding ability of Ethiopia’s Samuel Tefera that’s not strictly the case here in Tampere.

July 7, 2018 - 3:08am
Staggering. There's no other way to describe Kenyan dominance in this event. In 15 of the championships' 16 editions, the first man across the finish line wore the country’s black, red and green. In 10 of those races, Kenya took home gold and silver. The only certainty at the moment is that there won't be a repeat of the latter - simply because the east African powerhouse has, surprisingly, entered only one athlete in the event.
