Turkish runner Yasemin Can bagged the gold medal in Sunday’s European Cross Country Championships held in Portugal. 

Can claimed the gold in the senior women’s category in Lisbon 2019, finishing the 8-kilometer race (5 miles) in 26 minutes and 52 seconds.

This year’s gold medal was her fourth consecutive title in these championships.

Norway’s Karoline Bjerkeli Grovdal won the silver medal, while Samrawit Mengsteab from Sweden bagged the bronze.

“I did good. The course was hilly but I was ready for it because where I come from it’s like that,” said Can, a Kenyan-born Turkish national athlete.
