2018 Men’s 10,000 World Rankings

Joshua Cheptegei first appeared on the international scene with his win at the World Juniors in ’14. (ERROL ANDERSON/THE SPORTING IMAGE)

AS OUR SPORT MOVES towards tighter presentation, the 10K has all but disappeared from the European Circuit. Indeed, not a single mark from a European invitational meet appears in this year’s ratings. Instead, the Commonwealth Games served as the year’s most important race, with some late-year races by Kenyans in the Japanese corporate season also playing an important role. Half of our Rankers had only a single race…

JOSHUA CHEPTEGEI edged Mo Ahmed for the Commonwealth title, and those solo races gave them Nos. 1 & 2. Cheptegei was No. 2 last year, behind Mo Farah, now retired from track… Young Rhonex Kipruto twice set World Junior Records on the road, but those don’t count here. Nonetheless, he gets No. 3 after a pair of sub-28:00 races, one of them at high-altitude Nairobi… Then come the two Japanese-based Kenyans with the year’s fastest times, Stanley Waithaka (27:13.01) and Richard Yator (27:14.70)… The U.S. went without a scorer for the first time since ’09.
