Cheptegei crossed the line in 00:30:54 to win the 36th Cross International de Italica.

The 21-year-old  was followed by Uganda’s World Cross Country junior champion Jacob Kiplimo (00:30:55), and in 7th place, Joel Ayeko (00:31:48), world champion of mountain races.

Inaugurated in 1982, the race course is set in the ruins of the ancient Roman city of Italica.

It is the fifth leg of this season’s IAAF Cross Country Permit series.

Uganda’s Moses Kipsiro was the 2008 and 2009 winner of Italica.
