Reigning Olympic 5,000m champion Vivian Cheruiyot defended her title at the
38th edition Great North Run that was held on Sunday (9) in Newcastle, United Kingdom.
The 34 year-old saw off fellow Kenyan Brigid Kosgei to win her second women’s title when she cut the tape in 1:07.43.
Cheruiyot, who also won this year’s London Marathon, finished strongly to shake off world record holder Joyciline Kepkosgei, who was passed by Kosgei and had to cling on for third place.
