IAAF org: Chebii, Morató sprint to wins in Amorebieta Cross Country

2006-01-08

Kenya’s reigning World Cross Country championships silver medallist Abraham Chebii and Spaniard Rosa Morató captured thrilling sprint victories at the 52nd Cross Internacional Zornotza - EAA Permit.

Chebii outkicks Kiprop

Running in cloudy but pleasant conditions, seven men remained in the vanguard at the four kilometre point which was completed in a fast 11:53, but another 2:55 kilometre split by Kiprop was enough to leave all his rivals behind by the midway point except Chebii, with fellow Kenyan John Cheruiyot Korir and Eritrea’s Tesfayohannes Mesfin 20 metres behind. Further back, Ukraine’s six-time European Cross Country champion Sergiy Lebid ran alon in fifth, with a solid advantage over Spain’s Alberto García and José Ríos.

The young Kiprop, who was fourth at 10,000 metres at both the 2004 Olympic in Athens and the 2005 World Championships in Helsinki, tried to accelerate away from his fast-finishing pursuer Chebii several times but to no avail: attempts by Kiprop to disrupt Chebii with his surges served only to ensure a second place for himself as the Kenyan hardly blinked.
