Preview of the World Athletics Cross Country Championships and Viewing Options

Joshua is set to compete against Kiplimo once again at the upcoming World Athletics Cross Country Championships in Belgrade, Serbia. Notable athletes such as Berihu Aregawi of Ethiopia and Sabastian Sawe of Kenya will also be vying for top positions.

At the most recent World Athletics Cross Country Championships in Bathurst, Australia, Kiplimo emerged victorious with Cheptegei securing individual and team bronze medals. In Belgrade, Cheptegei has been in impressive form, recently clocking a fast time in Spain. He is considered one of the top contenders for a medal in Belgrade.

The course in Belgrade is much flatter than the previous World Cross editions, but Cheptegei expressed his excitement for the upcoming race, aiming for a third senior individual medal. The race will take place at Friendship Park in Belgrade, featuring a loop and obstacles like arch bridges, a hay maze, and hurdles. The women’s U20 race will begin at 11am (CET) on Saturday, with the senior men’s race following at 1:30pm. Viewers around the world can watch the event via the World Athletics YouTube channel or local broadcasters.
