Joshua Cheptegei won a gold and a silver medal at the Tokyo Olympics in Uganda. He won gold by running 5,000 meters and won silver by running 10,000 meters. Missed gold in 10 thousand meters for a while. On the other hand, Peruth Chemutai won gold in the women's 3,000m staplechase. Jacob Kiplimo won the bronze medal in the 10,000 meters.
