Joshua Cheptegei and Peruth Chemutai have left for China to participate in the second round of the IAAF Diamond League.

The event will take place in Shanghai, China on May 14th. “We are well focused for the event and hope to perform well,” Cheptegei who has also qualified for the 2016 Olympic Games told URN before leaving on Tuesday.

Cheptegei will compete in the 5000m race, while Chemutai has entered the 3000m race. The IAAF Diamond League season opened last Friday in Doha.

Dominic Otuchet, President of the Uganda Athletics Federation (UAF) said it will be a good chance for the Ugandan runners to get more international exposure in the explosive IAAF Diamond League. “This event is for top athletes and this will provide the best group for our own,” he added.

The IAAF Diamond League showcases 32 event disciplines which are carefully distributed among the meetings.

On Monday night Doreen Chemutai also traveled to Italy where she will take part in an International meet over the weekend.
