Celliphine Chespol is the only Kenyan to make it to the finals of the women's steeplechase final of the ongoing 2022 World Championships Oregon.
This is after her compatriots Purity Kirui and Jackline Chepkoech failed to make it past their respective semifinal heats.
Chespol staged a brilliant run to qualify for the finals after finishing first in the third semifinals heats on Saturday night.
She clocked 9:16.78 to make it through to the finals.
The weight of bringing back the gold now lies on her shoulders after defending champion Beatrice Chepkoech withdrew from the championships with an injury.
Kenyan-born Kazakhstanian Norah Jeruto run the fastest time after clocking 9:01.54. She was closely followed by Ethiopia's Werkuha Getachew (9:11.25) and Tunisia's Marwa Bouzayani ran her personal best of 9:12.14.
