IAAF.org: Kenyan Championships - Final day

20.06.2004

(19 June 2004) - Nairobi, Kenya – With the exception of the men’s 10,000m there were no upsets recorded on the final day of the Kenyan national championships at the Moi International Sports Centre in the outskirts of the capital, today. Also, most Athens Olympics qualifying standards once again proved unreachable despite ideal weather conditions.

Kamathi - more to come at the Olympic trials

2001 World 10,000 metres champion Charles Kamathi won the 5000 metres finals with a combined display of guts and patience. In the absence of many top runners who are preparing for next weekend’s Olympics trials, a good time or Athens Olympics qualifying time was not part of the agenda, and although running in one tight pack, nobody took the initiative.

Kamathi who finished second in the semi-final remained with the leading pack, always within striking distance but not very visible until the final lap when he moved to the front and started his attack from 200m out. He went on to win in 13:45.7 which was markedly slower than Augustine Choges 13:29.0 clocked to win the national junior title on Wednesday (16 June).

Julius Kiptoo finished second in 13:46.8 with Kiprono Menjo coming in third in 13:48.7, as Benjamin Maiyo faded to fifth.

Commenting on the slow pace, Kamathi said everybody was remaining uptight until the Athens Olympics trials and the nationals were simply a prelude to the real drama which lay ahead next weekend.
