Nairobi, Kenya - World marathon record holder Paul Tergat destroyed a field boasting many of Kenyas finest in the mens long course race at the 24th Armed Forces Championships today.

A day after the United Nations Rome-based World Food Programme appointed him as its Goodwill Ambassador (click here for yesterdays story), the five times World Cross Country Champion was urged on by awe stuck fans and officials to an amazing victory, executed with a superior game plan without equal.

On a cool fine morning, Tergat who only announced he would compete in this race late this week, moved to the front and shadowed the early pace setters, Commonwealth Games 3000m steeplechase bronze medallist Abraham Cherono, Kenyan champion John Korir and former World XC short course champion Benjamin Limo, in the first two of the six laps around the racecourse near Nairobi.

Confident of his form, Tergat moved to the front in the third lap by overtaking Cherono as Limo disappeared from the leading group. Step by step, Tergat lengthened his lead to 10 metres, then 20 and finally 70, to win in 37:46.
