Kenyan athlete wins race on one shoe


This 30 August 2018 video says about itself:

One Shoe Wonder Battles to Photo Finish in Men’s Steeplechase!

The men’s Diamond League steeplechase final featured a photo finish between Soufiane El Bakkali and Conseslus Kipruto. Kipruto lost a shoe mid race!

Kenyan Kipruto lost one shoe because another participant had kicked it out.

It reminds me of a Dutch children’s song.

This is a video of the song ‘De boer had maar ene schoen’, the farmer had just one shoe.

However, the farmer in that song did not have just one shoe because someone had kicked it out, but because he was poor.

And the song says that one shoe was not enough for the farmer. However, at least today, it was enough for Conseslus Kipruto.
