Running in the French city of Nice, the 25-year-old turned a normal Sunday into a special one with a delicious Cannes 10K, road field win.

The zestful and eloquent Cheptegei was cut above and beyond all his competitors as he blisteringly came home victorious at 26:49.

Though he narrowly missed the world record, Cheptegei managed to bag a 10-kilometer road world lead for 2022.

It was not about the legs but how good the head is and the Global Sports Communication Agency runner’s shoulders seem to carry a brainy one.

It is astonishing; he promised it and delivered it in a special manner. This win is not ordinary even by the World record holder and Olympics Gold and Silver medalist’s standards, because it was his first competitive race in seven months.

No wonder, after hitting the tape, Cheptegei exploded into wild celebrations having rediscovered his monstrous and proven skillset.

Uganda’s Greatest Athlete of All Time was amazingly sharp, alert, and unstoppable for the rivals who hailed from Eritrea, Kenya, France, and Ethiopia.

After a relaxed but calculated initial run, he cut clear just at the right time and kept steering his speedy ship from the beginning passing the 3 km mark in 7:55 and the 5-kilometer turning point at 13:18.

Kenyan, Samuel Habtom finished ahead of Sikowo with a time of 27:51.
