Yomif Kejelcha pictured during the final keeping close

attention on the break away group leader Joshua Cheptegei.

Those two and Rhonex Kipruto broke clear on the last lap but

Yomif running wide of Joshua was unable to match the Ugandan's

finishing speed and had to settle for second place, albeit with a new

personal best time.
