    Yes. They were behind Kenya and Ethiopia and ahead of Spain. USA was fifth.

    Moreira competed extensively before Christmas in the xc including the Euro xc, then competed indoors and won bronze in Turin, and noe won world xc team bronze! Good 6 months for her!
    I think so - they had three in the top-20. I thought Augusto was running alongside Twell but it was Moreiera.

    As you say, good for the Portuguese. All of their top runners take XC very seriously and always have very strong teams and are the best in Europe.

    The only name I have noted in the last six months in cross country in the British media has been Twell. I have seen copious references to her whenever she has run at European level. AW has talked of her very frequently ,

    ''great talent '' ''best since Radcliffe '' stuff in the Mediafrequently.

    . Media, as usual, going on too much about a first year senior.
    I've hardly heard anything in the media about the World Cross and I don't think anyone expected anything better than top-20.

    Brilliant charge from Kiplagat over the last 200m! Kenyans first and second - didn't see who was third (Melkamu probably))

    I love watching Lynet Masai run - am a big fan of hers. Let's hope she can keep that 15m gap.

    They're the same short legs that carried her to three Euro junior cross titles I think it's simply more of a case of going off too quickly. She usually performs better when she holds back a bit at the start and pushes the pace in the latter stages, so I was surprised to see her so near the start so soon.

    All part of the learning process I suppose.
