The National Cross Country started off with big surprise in the women 10km as Sandra Chebet clinched the crown when she beat Africa Youth 1500m silver medallist Eva Cherono and former world half marathon bronze medallist Pascalia Jepkorir at the 19th edition of Ndalat Gaa cross Country that was held in Nandi County.
Chebet cut the tape in 28:07.06 and was Cherono in 28:31.06 with third place going to Jepkorir of 28:40.03.
As Sandra exits the junior category, she lives behind her young sister Beatrice Chebet who finished second junior women category.
“My target is to make team to Africa Cross country and above all the Commonwealth Games in Australia,” said Sandra.
