IAAF.org: Kiplagat leads 13,000 women in Scotland

Kiplagat, who holds the course record at 31:14, finished in 32:29

2004-05-19

Glasgow, UK - Lornah Kiplagat sounded a warning to Paula Radcliffe after yesterday (Sunday 16 May) winning Great Britains biggest women-only 10,000 metres in Glasgow, Scotland for the fifth successive year.

No fears of Radcliffe in Athens

The woman who memorably ended the World marathon record-holders unbeaten individual sequence in Puerto Rico, says she has no fears about meeting her in Athens.

"I don mind what event she does," said Kiplagat. "I never even ask who is going to race against me. Thats not my problem, but I like Paula and I like racing her. She runs like me, does her own thing and doesn worry about others. She gets on with the race and doesn step on your feet."

No danger on Glasgows streets

Though almost two minutes slower than when she beat Radcliffe, there was little danger of anyone getting in Kiplagats way as she won the twelfth edition of the Britannic Asset Management 10k from a record field of 12,778 women in what is Britains biggest women-only 10k. It started 12 years ago with just 800 runners.

After less than two kilometres (6:25) she was already clear, but with skirling bagpipers playing at every kilometre post, and the streets thronged with thousands of supporters, she was never alone.

Kiplagat, who holds the course record at 31:14, finished in 32:29, collecting a £2000 prize.
