According to World Athletics, Uganda is placed fifth among the Top 10 Men’s Track Nations in 2022.

The United States of America is ranked top on the World Athletics ranking, followed by Kenya, Great Britain, and Canada.

Ethiopia, Uganda, and Jamaica all had the same number of points (20), tying them for fifth place.

South Africa, which is ranked at number 10, is the other country from Africa in the top 10.

The World Athletics Championships in Oregon, Eugene, USA, where Uganda achieved a lot of notable finishes in the men’s track and field, is where World Athletics owes the rankings.

Joshua Cheptegei upheld his 10,000m title when he raced to victory on day three of the 2022 World Athletics Championships that took  place at Hayward Field in Eugene, Oregon.

Cheptegei made a record by winning back-to-back gold medals in the 10000m marathons in 27.27.43 as the time taken this year. 

He joins the exclusive league of Haile Gebrselassie, Kenenisa Bekele & Mo Farah – the only humans to have won back-to-back world 10,000m championships.

Jacob Kiplimo, who also ran in the 10000m with Cheptegei, took third place, winning a bronze medal for Uganda in the same category. 

In the 5,000-meter finals, Oscar Chelimo settled for the bronze medal.
