Athletics: World Cross Country Highlights

Sunday 26 March



Highlights of the biennial championship from the Ugandan capital of Kampala, where the host nation’s athletes were vying to break the duopoly of Kenya and Ethiopia’s runners.

Kenya won both senior titles two years ago but were knocked off the top of the medal table for the first time in five editions by Ethiopia, who captured 11 medals.

British medal hopes rest with the inaugural mixed relay, an 8km race contested by teams of two men and two women.
