Even before the final, it looks already like the battle will be for any other medal – if any at all – other than gold.For the last 36 years, the Kenyans have won gold in the 3000m steeplechase, and in 1992 and 2004, made it a 1-2-3.Led by defending champion Ezekiel  Kemboi, their stars include former junior champion  Conseslus Kipruto who has the year’s season’s best of 8:00.12.Uganda’s best steeplechase runner Kiplagat will have to clock his best ever time of  8:03.81 to challenge them, but he first must qualify for the final. His best performance was five years ago in 2010, and with a season best of  8:20.35, the 27-year-old will hope for a performance that gets him one of the best finishers places.The top 3 in each heat, and six best finishers in the 3 heats makes the final.Cheptegei best Ugandan so farUganda’s best performance so far has come from 19-year-old Joshua Cheptegei who finished 10th in the 10,000m final that won was Britain’s Mo Farah. He gets another shot when he runs his favourite race, the 5000m.Other notable performances have come from Peruth Chemutai in finishing 7th, and getting a 17th ranking with a personal best in her steeplechase heat while marathoner Adero Nyakisi could only manage 68th. Juliet Chekwel would have had a better result if she had finished the 10,000m final.The boxers failed to make any impact in the preliminary rounds, same as the swimmers.Monday August 15 Men’s 3000m steeplechase round 1 – 4.25pmBenjamin Kiplagat and Jacob AraptanyTuesday August 16 Women’s 5000m round 1 – 3.30pmJuliet Chekwel and Stella ChesangMen’s 1500m round 1 – 4-30pmRonald MusagalaWed August 17 Men’s 5000m round 1 – 4.05pmJacob Kiplimo, Phillip Kipyego and Joshua Kiprui CheptegeiWomen’s 800m round 1 – 4.55pmHalimah Nakaayi and Winnie NanyondoMen’s Steeplechase final – Jacob AraptanyThursday August 18 Men’s 1500m semifinal – Ronald MusagalaWomen 800m semifinalFriday August 19 Women’s 5000m finalSaturday August 20 Men’s 1500m finalWomen’s 800m finalMen’s 5000m final 3.30pmJacob Kiplimo, Phillip Kipyego and Joshua Kiprui CheptegeiSunday August 21 Men’s Marathon final 3.30pmSolomon Mutai, Jackson Kiprop and Stephen Kiprotich 26922053Taylor MILNECAN8:34.38 19630161Benjamin KIPLAGATUGA8:30.76 INTO FINAL ON WEDNESDAY: France’s Yoann Kowal (L), USA’s Donald Cabral (C) and Uganda’s Jacob Araptany (2ndR) compete in the Men’s 3000m Steeplechase Round 1 during the athletics event at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games at the Olympic Stadium in Rio de Janeiro on August 15, 2016.
