Joshua Cheptegei Talks After Breaking The 5,000m World Record Cheptegei says he never doubted he’d break Kenenisa Bekele‘s 5,000 WR and now may go for the 10,000 mark. “I have a surprise. I might run a 10,000 meters very soon,” said Cheptegei. Cheptegei also reveals he’s wanted to be the GOAT since 2014, talks about why Uganda could finally be emerging as a serious distance power and discusses if a sub-12:30 or sub-26:00 are possible. “12:30 Could Be Possible, Maybe Also Sub-26:00? I Don’t Know.”
