First rising long-distance runner Jacob Kiplimo is back in the headlines again after he won 3000m at the Diamond League in Rome, Italy.

Just weeks after winning the 5000m at the Golden Spike Meet in Ostrava, Czech Republic, the son of the land registered a time of 7:16:64 to beat Norway’s pre-race favourite Jakob Ingebrigtsen at the Stadio Olympico in Rome, Italy in the men’s 3000m final during the IAAF Diamond League competition.

This comes a week after an exceptional record-breaking performance at the 59th Ostrava Golden Spike in the Czech Republic last week, where he set a new meet record over the 5000m distance clocking 12:48.63.

Kiplimo’s record in Rome over the seven-and-a-half-lap distance broke Australia’s Ryan Gregson’s meet record of 7:42.19.

Fellow athlete, Joshua Cheptegei has joined many Ugandans to congratulate Kiplimo upon his achievements.

“Huge congratulations to my colleague Jacob kiplimo upon running the 6th fastest all time over 3000m in Rome with a time of 7:26, running a world lead, national record, the future is indeed bright.”

The High Court has this morning dismissed the case that was filed against the new leadership of the National Unity Platform (NUP) party. The founder of NUP, Moses Kibalama Nkonge filled the case with the hope of getting back his party from Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu a.k.a Bobi Wine.

According to High Court Judge Musa Sekaana in a judgment sent via email: “The judicial review guidelines or rules equally provide for locus standi and this would have been the threshold before the applicants would seek to challenge actions of the party. It is an abuse of court process. This application is dismissed with costs to the respondents.”
