  • World XC: Senior Men [split]

    Gebremariam wins the men's race. I'm quite happy about this because he hasn't shown this sort of form for quite a few years.

    Team USA had a decent day. FIfth in the each of the first three races and eighth in the men's senior race behind five African teams plus Qatar and Spain.

      So after all the talk of Kenya having their best ever team, and doing a clean sweep in the absence of Bekele, etc, they didn't even make the podium in the senior mens race!

        Paul Dickenson can be absolutely useless at the best of times - how he thought that was Paul Tergat handing out the medals I don't know!

              Were they definitely doing the same laps though?

              Looks like there's a long lap and a short lap.

                i believe gebremariam and his wife werknesh kidane are the first couple to both win at world xc.
                also gebrremariam has 15 medals from world xc and his wife has 20, so 35 medals for the couple has to be a record.
