S. Kissa competed in the 5000 metres at the 2017 World Championships but did not advance to the finals after finishing 52nd in the world cross country championships. The next year, 2018, he competed in the 5000-meter event at the African Championships and placed eighth.

In July of 2018, at Athletissima with Lausanne, he ran the race in a personal best time of 13 minutes, 10.93 seconds. His 3000 metre time of 7 minutes, 54.32 seconds was recorded in Rabat, Morocco, in July of 2018.

In his final competition of 2018, he took first place in the Dutch road race Montferland Run, which was 15 kilometres long. S. Kissa has also found success in the half marathon, where he has placed in the top three twice this year.

His personal best in the 10,000-meter race is a 4th-place 27:34:48, achieved at the 2020 NN Valencia World Record Day at the Estadio de Atletismo del Turia. S. Kissa has proven time and time again that he is more than just a pacemaker; in 2019, he won the Laredo, Spain, 10k road race in a personal best time of 27 minutes and thirteen seconds.

Meanwhile, S. Kissa recorded a personal best (PB) of 58:56 to finish third in the New Delhi half-marathon. Just one month after assisting Joshua in setting the world 10,000m record in Valencia. His performance placed him tenth in the world for 2020.

Ahead of the marathon, Addy Ruiter, my coach, informed me, “You have been running 60 minutes, it would be advantageous to run 59 minutes. I assured him I could do it, and I gave it my all in the game. A time of 58 minutes for a 5k race truly pleased me.

The Ugandan showed great potential, but had a mixed 2021 due to injury, mistakes, and his own selflessness.

Conclusion

In July of 2018, in Athletissima in Lausanne, he ran a personal best time of 13 minutes, 10.93 seconds. His 3000 metre time of 7 minutes, 54.32 seconds was recorded in Rabat, Morocco, in July of 2018.

In his final competition of 2018, he took first place in the Dutch road race Montferland Run, which was 15 kilometres long.
