IAAF.org: Tariku Bekele beats Paul Tergat, who has Berlin Marathon 2005 in his mind

2004-11-23

The 17 year-old Tariku Bekele, brother of Ethiopia’s World and Olympic 10,000m champion Kenenisa, won the men’s race, while Kenyan Alice Timbilil took the women’s category win at the Oeiras International, the first IAAF Cross Country Permit race of the 2004/2005 season.

Everyone already knows Kenenisa Bekele’s talent, the winner of last year’s race and of course, the six-time World Cross Country champion. This year he didn’t come to defend his title (which he won in 2002 and 2003) but his younger brother Tariku managed to keep the Oeiras trophy in the family in what turned out to be a very interesting race.

Paul Tergat, who was second, said that he intends to run marathon races in London and Berlin in 2005.
