Just three weeks before she attempts to recapture the World Cross Country title in Brussels, Belgium (20/21 March), Britains Paula Radcliffe has suffered an unexpected defeat by the Netherlands Lorna Kiplagat over 10km on the road in Puerto Rico.

It was both Radcliffes and Kiplagats first race of 2004, and marked a return to the scene of the event in which the Briton set her World record performance 12 months ago (30:21), but Kiplagat, who finished fifth at last summers World 10,000m final in Paris in a national record (30:12.53), was victorious this time.

In very windy conditions, Kenyan-born Kiplagat - who took out Dutch citizenship last year when marrying coach Pieter Langerhorst - won in a time of 30:41.
