I do extend my warmest congratulations to Assistant Superintendent of Police, Joshua Cheptegei, for his Spectacular Gold Medal achievement, in the Men’s 10.000m at the World Championship in Oregon, USA. I also thank his colleague athletes, Jacob Kiplimo and Stephen Kiisa, for the tactical approach and cooperation that led to the successive victory.
As you raced towards the finishing line, you were filled with skill, determination and hard work, amidst a very competitive team of athletes. You are now an embodiment of excellence and I am incredibly proud of you, for earning the Uganda Police and the country, a Gold Medal.
From the UPF records, you are now in the history books as the most decorated athlete, which is not only an historic accomplishment, but an inspiration to Ugandans of all walks of life.
I also extend by best wishes to everyone, who has played a role in your extraordinary achievement, especially your coaches, families, friends, the Directorate of Sports, friends and all Ugandans.
Once again congratulations upon this remarkable performance, together with all the other athletes. You represent the best of Uganda and the Police.
I look forward to welcoming you home and celebrate with you.
Inspector General of Police
