This outstanding performance not only secured Kejelcha a victory but also showcased his dominance on the track leading up to the Tokyo Olympics.

Kejelcha faced stiff competition from fellow athletes Berihu Aregawi, who finished closely behind with a time of 26:31.13, and Selemon Barega, securing third place with 26:34.93. Their impressive runs underscore Ethiopia's depth in long-distance running and set a high standard as they prepare for international competition.
