Timothy Cheruiyot wins 1500M race in Stockholm Diamond League

Kenya was back again in the books of the Diamond League meeting in Stockholm as Timothy Cheruiyot of took the battle high winning the 1500M men race.
The 21 year old Cheruiyot finished seventh in the 2015 world championships final where Kiprop last struck gold, but here he earned greater rewards as he took control of the race around the final bend.

He held off the challenge of Bahrain’s Alsadik Mikhou, who was second in 3:31.49, and Ethiopia’s Aman Wote, third in a season’s best of 3:31.63 and just ahead of Kiprop, whose time of 3:33.17 was also a season’s best.

The victory race showed that his illustrious compatriot and triple world champion Asbel Kiprop still has a way to go if he plans to win a fourth consecutive title in London this summer.
