Russia romps home

Moving out of the elite division for the first time ever will be the women’s team from Great Britain as a result of their eighth-place finish. Additionally, the seventh-place Spanish women will compete in the First League in 2005.

With the Russian women romping to an easy team win, it was important that luminaries such as Britain’s Paula Radcliffe and Yelena Slesarenko of Russia were present to add spice to the women’s proceedings.
