IAAF.org: Cheptot and Kosgei successfully battle humidity in Prague

2005-05-23

Steven Matebo Cheptot kept his head cool in warm and humid weather to win Prague’s Volkswagen Marathon in 2:10:42 to lead yet another clean sweep of the medals by Kenyan runners today. Salina Jebet Kosgei won the women’s race in 2:28:42. In what proved to be a race with an exciting and unexpected finish the 30-year-old fared well in the less than ideal running conditions (19 Celsius, 70 percent humidity during the race). His task was also helped by the fact that the pre-race favourite, who had established a clear lead and held it until km 35, Wilson Kiprotich Kebenei suddenly quit with a harmstring injury. Laban Kipngetich was second in 2:11:48 followed by Robert Kiprotich Cheruiyot on third place in 2:12:14.
