Songok wint Kenyaanse trials


Songok in de Kenyaanse modder

Door Omulo Okoth

Er stond geen maat op Isaac Songok in de Kenyaanse trials. Hij was in de korte cross met overmacht de sterkste. Wereldkampioen 5000 Benjamin Limo werd slechts vijfde in de korte cross. Ook bij de dames was er een verassing niet Ochichi maar Prisca Jepleting werd winnares van de korte cross. De WK cross teams voor het WK in het Japanse Fukuoka werden na afloop bekend gemaakt. Het 34e WK cross wordt op 1 en 2 april georganiseerd.

Mannen korte cross
World 5000m champion Benjamin Limo survived a punishing course which included a 200m muddy stretch, to make the 4km team after finishing sixth in 12:34. “The course was too muddy. But I am fine with the result and I hope to win medals in (Commonwealth Games) Melbourne and Fukuoka,” said Limo.Up front Isaac Songok, won in 12:16 ahead of reigning World Junior XC champion Augustine Choge (12:21). Yusuf Biwott was third, 12:262004 Athens Olympics steeplechase medallists Brimin Kipruto and Paul Kipsiele Koech were well beaten. Kipruto, Athens silver medallist, was fifth in 12:33 but, like Limo, was selected in the team for Fukuoka. Koech, the bronze medallist in Athens, finished in 13th place and missed his chance. Sammy Kipketer, and the 2003 track sensation, Abraham Chebii, were 14th and 11th respectively in the 4km race.

Mannen lange cross
Teenage student, Hosea Macharnyang, running his second national race as a senior, won the 12km race in 39:18. Macharnyang, who turns 20 in June, was second during the national championships last month. Moses Masai, who won that race, today dropped out half way due to illness, but was named in the World XC team by selectors, who said he must prove himself in the pre-champs training camp.Macharnyangs victims included John Kibowen, a previous winner of two World Cross short race titles, who finished in fifth position but made the team too. The 2001 World 10,000m champion, Charles Kamathi, finished in seventh place and missed selection.Macharnyang maintained his position in the leading group throughout the race, running with Kibowen, Martin Irungu, Simon Kiprop, Kamathi, Simon Arusei and Abraham Cherono. But before the bell lap, Cherono and Kamathi dropped back as the rest battled for the front positions. The final battle was very much between Macharnyang, Kiprop and Irungu, and with 200m to go, Macharnyang was clearly in control and he won by more than 60 metres.“I want to prove it at the World Championships,” said the winner. “This is just a start of big things to come,” confirmed the year three student at Kapcherop Secondary School in the Marakwet highlands of Rift Valley Province.

Dames korte cross
Athens Olympics 5000m silver medallist, Isabella Ochichi, suffered her biggest defeat at home, with a fifth place finish in the womens 4km race. Ochichi, who was the 2005 World Cross 4km bronze medallist, was graceful in defeat and said it had prepared her well for the task ahead. “I have got the endurance that I wanted and I can assure you medals in Melbourne and Fukuoka,” said the police officer.Ahead of Ochichi, Prisca Jepleting won (14:20) with Beatrice Rutto in second place, and Beatrice Jepchumba, in third place after leading the break up of the lead pack early in the race.

Dames lange cross
Alice Kimeto won in 29:37 ahead of Mercy Wanjiru (29:49). Everline Wambui, the national 10,000m champion, finished ninth but was selected in the team instead of Monica Wangare, who was sixth.
