NANCY Cheptegei has bagged her second silver medal and Uganda's fifth after the youngster finished second in the womenâ€™s 3000m event on Sunday at the 4th Youth Commonwealth Games in Isle of Man.
Cheptegei posted 9:22.70 to complete revenge against Kenyaâ€™s Norah Jeruto Tanui who had beaten her to gold in the womenâ€™s 2000m steeplechase on Friday. Tanui settles for bronze in the womenâ€™s 3000m.
Cheptegei who opened up Ugandaâ€™s medal count on Friday won a silver medal in the womenâ€™s 2000m steeplechase which was followed by Halima Nakaayiâ€™s gold in the womenâ€™s 800m on Saturday.
Meanwhile, Phillip Kipyeko who arrived after 8:02.33 put a personal best but the dominant Kenyan opposition of William Malel Sitonik and Patrick Mutunga Mwikya beat him to the finish line grabbing gold and silver in that order.
The Bukwo-based youngster who finished 7th in the same race at the 7th IAAF World Youth Championships in July after posting 8:11.12 in Lille, France improved his time in the event, promising to be Ugandaâ€™s next medal hopeful at international youth games.
This medal brings Ugandaâ€™s medals at these games to five with Zakaria Kiproitich taking home a silver medal in the menâ€™s 2000m steeplechase on Saturday.
Meanwhile, Uganda suffered a setback when Halima Nakaayi was disqualified in the women's 800m final which saw England's Katie Snowden win the gold medal.
Nakaayi had earlier on posted the best time in the semi-finals 2:14.69 as Snowden posted 2:17.38 in the semi-finals as well. Uganda has one gold, three silver and one bronze medal.
