IAAF.org: Full of surprises – Kenyan Olympic Trials, final day - Athens squad announced

Kemboi wins but Kipruto catches the eye

26.06.2004

Nairobi, Kenya - On a fine afternoon at the Moi International Sports Centre, Kasarani, 15,000 spectators saw the Olympic ambitions of Reuben Kosgei, Wilson Boit Kipketer, Charles Kamathi, Patrick Ivuti and Edith Masai bite the dust today.

The revelation of the mens 3000m Steeplechase final was the world’s second fastest of the season Brimin Kipruto, who at only 19 years of age finished second (8:17.1) behind World silver medallist Ezekiel Kemboi (8:16.5), and so was automatically selected for the Olympics. Kipruto will also compete in the World juniors in Grosseto next month in the 1500m.

Commonwealth Games bronze medallist Abraham Cherono tried to set up a fast pace but failed to hold his position after Kemboi, followed by Kipruto moved to the front with two laps remaining. Cherono who finished in third (8:23.0) also made the Athens team.

Reuben Kosgei, the reigning Olympics Steeplechase champion dropped out of today’s race on the last lap, while Boit Kipketer, the 1997 World champion and former World record holder was pushed into sixth.

Kipchoge dominant at 5000m

In what was expected to be the feature race of the two-day meeting, World champion Eliud Kipchoge won the mens 5000m in commanding style, demolishing a world class field midway.

Kipchoge heaved a sigh of relief at the finish, confirming “my chest has been heavy with anxiety for a whole year. It is now cleared having won today and from now I can say Athens will be easy.”
