Belfast, UK - World Marathon record-holder Paul Tergat returned to the city that witnessed the last of his five world cross country victories, running a controlled race to win the - IAAF permit - Belfast International today.

Tergat didn’t hit the front until the closing stages but always seemed in command in his final cross country race of the winter. Having abandoned plans to chase a record sixth World cross title, Tergat was looking to return to winning ways in Belfast before returning to his marathon preparations at a Kenyan training camp.

He sat in throughout as a large leading group stayed intact for the first three of five laps, Italian Umberto Pusterla prominent as were the leading British athletes but it was always the Africans who were expected to control matters when things got serious.

Early into the fourth lap World Half Marathon silver medallist Fabian Joseph of Tanzania began to push the pace, and a trio of Kenyan stars went with him, with Pusterla remaining the best of the Europeans.

Joseph continued to set the pace on the final circuit but Tergat always looked strong and when it came down to the final straight there was only going to be one winner. Tergat eased his way past last year’s fourth placer and his victory was more convincing than the one second margin suggests.
