This seems to have worked for him but miserably failed to scoop the first place.

However, he made it to the podium after making it at 3:41.62 – almost two minutes behind Musagala.

‘When you are not used to a certain race, it gives you a challenge but I think it is helpful,” said Kipsiro who won the semi-finals and quarter finals only to lose out during the finals.

Kipsiro now is expected to take up his position (number 1) as the event goes in final day where he is to participate in his usual races of 10000m and 5000m on Saturday (today).

Meanwhile, though Ronald Musagala won the 1500m, he didn’t qualify for the Moscow world Athletics championships that are on next month since his victory was below the underlined time for qualification.

Musangala may not have any other chance to qualify since the deadline is July 27.
