• Early celebration Costs Jacob Kiplimo Win at São Silvestre

Article source: Athletics


Kenya's Kibiwott Kandie edged Uganda's Jacob Kiplimo at the Corrida Internacional de São Silvestre a 15km road race in Sao Paulo, Brazil on Tuesday, Dec 31.

With 500m left in the race Kiplimo, the World Cross Country Championships silver medalist, was in a comfortable lead and it seemed he would become the first Ugandan to win the historic road race. But Kandie with a late kick in the final 30m meters overtook the pre-race favorite Jacob Kiplimo.

Both men clocked 42:59 breaking the previous course record of 43:15 set by legendary Kenyan Paul Tergat back in 1995.

Brigid Kosgei of Kenya, the marathon World record holder, won the women’s 15km race by more than a minute.  Kosgei stopped the clock at 48:54 just 20 seconds shy of the course record.
