Joshua CHEPTEGEI - Second in 10,000m at 2017 World Championships.

Nineteen year old Joshua Cheptegei chases the defending champion Mo Farah
to the finish line in the men's 10,000m final. The 2014 World Junior 10,000m Champion
gave Mo a real challenge and nearly all the athletes ran either seasonal (7) or
personal best (12) times with two National records - Canada and Bahrain.
