Former steeplechase world champion, Hyvin Kiyeng, is proving to be the person to beat in the women’s 3000m steeplechase. After winning the Rome Golden gala, she was once again victorious at Oslo. But this time she had to fend off a strong challenge from American Emma Coburn who is also the Olympic champion.
Coburn led for much of the race before Kiyeng took over in the last lap. She tried to shake off Coburn. But the American made a spirited comeback after he last hurdle. But it was not enough to catch Kiyeng. Daisy Chepkemei finished a creditable third ahead of Olympic silver medalist Courtney Frerichs of the USA.
