Men’s Steeplechase Final (11:10pm)

Can Jacob Araptany and Albert Chemutai emulate Dorcas Inzikuru in the World Athletics Championships steeplechase?

Inzikuru won gold in the same event when it was first introduced as a women’s event in 2005.

The event that has always been on biennial competition’s men’s schedule has been dominated by Kenya.

The Ugandan duo will like competitors from six other countries, be out to stop Kenya’s domination.

A medal in this highly competitive event will be Uganda’s second.

Joshua Cheptegei got Uganda off to a flying start on the opening day with silver in the men’s 10,000m.

For Araptany tonight’s race will be an opportunity to make up for an accident he suffered in Rio Olympics final.
