Kenya bags her first Gold medal in Oregon

Women’s 1500m race promised to be one of the most exciting races, with a fully stacked field. It did not disappoint as Faith Kipyegon of Kenya bagged the gold medal, to defend her crown in the 1500m race.

Faith Kipyegon dominated the race, as she established a healthy lead towards the end stages of the race and registered a personal best of 3.52.9 minutes in the women’s 1500-meter race.

The double Olympic champion now became double world title, reclaiming the title she lost in 2019 to Netherland’s Sifan Hassan who didn’t do the 1500m this year.

Kipyegon strolled on to victory, becoming the first ever woman to win four World Championship medals in the 1500m. In 2015 and 2019 she won silver, and now two titles; 2017 and 2022.
