The spotlight of  Sunday’s (4 December) Samsung Milano City Marathon will be a battle between defending champion Daniel Cheribo and his Kenyan compatriot Michael Rotich.

Rotich revealed his potential in 2002 when he finished second in this race behind compatriot Robert Cheruiyot after a breathtaking sprint in the final metres of the race. Both Kenyans, along with Italian Daniele Caimmi, clocked 2:08:59 but victory went to Cheruiyot in an extremely close photo-finish.

Springboard for future Marathon stars.

Rotich, who was eighth in the 2003 World Championships in Paris and runner-up in Rotterdam in 2004, returns to Milan after his recent seventh place showing at rea,- BERLIN-MARATHON in September (2:10:53) :::
