IAAF.org: Kiplagat dominates New York Mini 10km
New York, USA - Lornah Kiplagat of the Netherlands tore away from the field in the first few hundred yards of the 2005 New York Mini 10K this morning in Manhattan, and ran solo to the win in 31:44. Kiplagat, who also won the Central Park race in 2003, built an 11-second gap at the first mile into a 34-second winning margin over Jelena Prokopcuka of Latvia.
On a warm Manhattan morning, Kiplagat started with a faster pace than anyone else cared to match. Prokopcuka, Benita Johnson, Tegla Loroupe, and Margaret Okayo took turns leading the pursuit with the field of 4700 spreading out behind them.
