On October 17, the 2020 Half Marathon World Championships ended in Gdynia, Poland. The Ugandan star and world champion Cheputge, who participated in the half marathon for the first time, won the fourth place in 59 minutes and 21 seconds. A feat that won the championship and broke the world record. However, this year Cheput Gai broke the world record for men's running 5 kilometers, 5000 meters and 10000 meters. It is already a world record.
As the gold medalist of the men's 10,000m at the 2019 Doha World Championships in Athletics, Cheput Gai is a strong mid- and long-distance running star in recent years. But before 2020, Cheputgues can only be regarded as the world's top athletes, and does not have absolute dominance. Until it has broken the men's 5,000m and 10,000m world records maintained by Becquer for more than ten years, the outside world agrees that China The new king of long-distance running has been born.
The reason why Cheput Gai received such high praise, in addition to repeatedly breaking the world record feat, also benefited from the all-around performance in the three areas of off-road, track and road running. Winning the men's 5,000m and 10,000m gold medals in the Tokyo Olympics is naturally Cheputgate's short-term goal, but he will not stop there. He will continue to show dominance in road running and cross-country arena, and also in Cheputgate. In planning.
Cheput Gai之所以获得如此高的赞誉，除了屡次打破世界纪录的壮举外，还得益于越野，田径和公路行驶三个领域的全面表现。 Cheputgate的短期目标自然是在东京奥运会上赢得5000万和10000万男子金牌，但他不会止步于此。他将继续在公路行驶和越野比赛以及在Cheputgate中显示统治地位。在计划中。

Like so many talented and accomplished middle and long distance runners, Cheput Gai also embarked on the road of middle and long distance running after being discovered. There have been high-light moments of fame in World War I, and there are no lack of troubled low periods. After years of training in the competition, he finally ushered in a bright future in the past two years.
Born in a small village in eastern Uganda, Cheputge liked to play football when he was a child. He also tried track and field events such as long jump and triple jump, but he was more hobby. Until college, a coach discovered his
In July 2013, Cheputguet participated in the first official race of his career in Uganda. He ran 8 minutes 43.21 in the 3000-meter obstacle course and finished fourth. In July 2014, Cheput cover appeared in the U20 World Championships and won the men's 10,000m champion and 4th place in the 5000m respectively, which gradually attracted attention.
In the 2016 Rio Olympics, Cheputge, under the age of 20, entered the Olympic arena for the first time, winning 8th and 6th in the men's 5000m and 10000m respectively. At the 2017 World Championships in London, Cheputgate was only one step away from the world champion, and he lost less than half a second to Mo Farah and finished second.
For Cheputgay, the biggest blow came from the 2017 Cross-Country World Championships, and that game was once his most reluctant memory to mention.
As the host player, Cheput Gai had the highest call for the championship before the game. Towards the end of the game, he was still far ahead. All Ugandan citizens even celebrated the victory in advance. The subsequent plot was unexpected. The Cheput Gai suddenly dropped speed. The last two kilometers were overtaken by 29 competitors, and only 30 were finally won.
作为主持人，切普特·盖（Cheput Gai）在比赛开始前对冠军的要求最高官网亚博。在比赛快要结束时，他仍然遥遥领先。所有乌干达公民甚至提前庆祝了胜利。随后的情节出乎意料。 Cheput Gai突然降低速度。最后两公里被29名竞争对手超越，最终仅赢了30公里。
"I don't dare to recall that game. It took several weeks to cheer up again." The loss of the game in an extremely embarrassing manner in front of my hometown elders once caused Cheput Gai to be hit, but the tragic loss also inspired He realized the transformation, and now he has the new king of middle and long distance running.
For the world's top middle and long distance runners, focusing on the main event of track racing is the norm. Take Kipchoge, Becquer, Mo Farah and other names as examples. They all started to try marathon events until the end of their careers after they achieved fame, or they retired to run on the road.
Cheput Gai is different. Since becoming a professional player, he has taken care of track racing, cross-country and road races. Like 5 kilometers in a road race track and 5000 meters in a track race, it seems that the distance is the same, but the technical requirements for the world's top athletes are very different, not to mention the cross-country race.
It seems to be related to Uganda's undulating terrain. The Cheputge, who has been training in his hometown for a long time, can always quickly adapt to events with different venue conditions.
In November 2018, in a road race held in the Netherlands, Cheputgue broke the men's 15 km world record in 41 minutes and 05 seconds. In March 2019, Cheputgue won the adult championship of the World Cross Country Championships in Denmark, making up for the regret of 2017. In December 2019, in a road race in Valencia, Spain, Cheputgue broke the then men's 10km world record in 26 minutes and 38 seconds.
As early as the beginning of his career, Cheputgues proposed to participate in the half-marathon, but was eventually declined by the coaching team.
In October of this year, Cheputge finally got permission to participate in the Half Marathon World Championships and made his career debut in the Half Marathon. Although he only won 4th place, he set foot on the marathon, which was a new beginning for him.
If the cross-country world championships, the 15km and 10km world records are still "a little trouble", and the Doha World Championships 10,000-meter champion is regarded as a "routine operation", then this year's 3 world records will be broken, and Bekeler will maintain 10 Two track records for more than a year have passed, and it is a sign of Cheputgate's dominance of the middle and long distance race track.
In mid-February this year, in a road race held in Monaco, Cheputgue broke the men's 5km world record with 12 minutes and 51 seconds, marking a good start for the 2020 season. The sudden epidemic and the suspension of global track and field events also made Cheputgue feel helpless, but he quietly returned to his hometown and continued to work hard, waiting for the few opportunities to compete.
At the Diamond League Monaco station in August, under the witness of 5,000 live spectators, Cheput Guy took the lead in crossing the line with 12 minutes 35.36 seconds, breaking the 16-year-old men's 5,000-meter world record. The previous world record was set by Bekeler. Created in May 2004, the score is 12 minutes 37.35.
Less than two months later, Cheputgue flew to Valencia, Spain, in a special track and field competition, to attack another world record of Becquer. In 2005, Becquer ran 26:17.53 in the men's 10,000m race. This world record was maintained for 15 years and was broken by Cheputgate in October this year.
Within two months, he broke the men's 5,000m and 10,000m world records, and attributed the two records that Becquer had maintained for more than ten years to his own name. Cheptge received the sincere blessings of his idol Becquer and established Historical position in the field of middle and long distance running.
With Cheput Gai's hot state this season, if the Tokyo Olympics are not postponed, he is expected to win the men's 5,000m and 10,000m gold medals. For the Ugandan star who held four world records at the age of 24, there are countless histories waiting for him to create the future.
