Peruth (CHEM-MOO-TIE) Chemutai has become the first Ugandan woman to win an Olympic gold medal, winning Wednesday's 3-thousand meter steeplechase final.
The 22 year old finished on 9-minutes-1.4-5 seconds more than three seconds ahead of the American silver medalist, who had been leading until the last lap.
This is only the third overall Olympic gold for Uganda, the first coming in the men's 400 meter hurdles in 1972 followed by the men's marathon in 2012.
