athletics Kenya National Cross Country series: the Ugandan Kibet master in Kenya

The Ugandan Soyekwo Kibet made a surprise in the Kenyan Cross Championship. The competition was run at Eldoret with sixth stages.

Kibet ran the 12 km in 34’45 “and left no chance to Kenyans Julius Kogo, relegated to 15 seconds, Wilson Kiprop (35’21”), Joseph Ebuya (35’31 “), Richard ICEMS (35 ’40 “) and Abraham Tamo (35’40”).

The Ugandan victory is a warning free of charge before the 2013 World championships planned in Poland.

The women’s race was much tighter. The Victory of  Hyvin Kiyen Jepkemoi (8 km in 26’58 “) is held by a thread as  her compatriot Lineth Chepkirui (26’58”) clung to her heels. Beatrice Chepkemoi (26’59 “), Georgina Rono (27’02”) and Edith Chelimo (27’11 “) were not far from the top spot.
