Kenya’s Faith Kipyegon, 22, has won a gold medal for her country after coming first in the women’s 1,500m race.
She completed the race in 4:8.92secs to defeat world record holder, Genzebe Dibaba of Ethiopia.
“It was an amazing race. I needed to focus for the middle because I knew Genzebe (Dibaba) is so fast and I really had to kick on the last lap,” Kipyegon said after the race.
Dibaba won Silver, while U.S.A’s Jenny Simpson took Bronze.
