Kenya tops the world - 2 new world records

Being Kenyan born - it always pleases me to get the latest updates on how our wonderful athletes are slowly dominating the long distance running grounds; both men and women.

 

9th May 2010 saw the 25 kilometre record being completely shattered both in the men and women’s categories in Berlin.

 

The athletes woke up to perfect running conditions – slight cloud cover, no wind and temperatures for the 25 k distance remained between 12 and 14 degrees Celsius.

 

As my friend and ex world champion marathon runner Kassa Tadese would explain to elite runners – “when such perfect running are magically put together on very rare occasions – a well trained athlete must take out the maximum and find that little extra energy from inside to make the difference”.

 

Samuel Kosgei came in at 1 hour 11 minutes and 50 seconds shattering the word record.

Samuel ran the last Berlin marathon as a pace maker for the current marathon world record holder – Ethiopian Haile Gebrselassie (who holds the record of 2 hours 3 minutes and 59 second which he set in September 2008 at the Berlin marathon).  Samuel has his mind and heart set for September 2010 – Berlin.

This will be very a interesting race – Haile running with Samuel – a legend with a man set to re write the running history books….

 

On the same morning Kenyan elite runner Mary Keitany smashed the women’s 25 k record finishing race with a fantastic time of 1 hour 19 minutes and 53 seconds.
