Kenya’s Hyvin Kiyeng, will for the second time square it out with United States Emma Coburn at the Oslo Bislett games that will be held on Thursday (7) in Oslo, Norway.
The first time we got to see the last two world champs, Kiyeng and Coburn, match up did not disappoint. On the final water jump, Kiyeng, Coburn, and world U20 champion Celliphine Chespol were all level, but a fall by Coburn left it as a two-woman race, won by Kiyeng in a world leader of 9:04.96 after a dramatic home-straight run.
Emma is full of life as she has left behind what happened in Rome and is ready to tackle the handle this time being more cautious.
Through her twitter account Coburn said, “Leaving for Oslo in the morning, I’m so excited for @BislettGames!! Should be fire (hopefully no falls this time).
Three more Kenyans Daisy Jepkemei(9:15.56, Purity Kirui (9:21.34, Ann Gathoni (9:47.71 and Caroline Tuigong (10:10.20 will be on the start lineup.
The race will start at 9:20PM Kenyan time.
