Jukka Keskisalo, Jussi Utriainen and Annemari Sandell-Hyvärinen took the senior national cross country championships titles quite easily in Vammala, Finland, on Sunday 18 May in cold weather of only +2 to 3 degrees but fortunately no rain.
Keskisalo, the reigning European 3000m Steeplechase Champion, was strongly challenge in the men’s 4km by Matti Räsänen, with whom he has trained for three and half months in South Africa and Portugal last winter and this spring.
Keskisalo, 27, beat Räsänen by only one second, but was never seriously threatened in the home straight.
“I feel that I am in a better spring condition than in 2006 (his European title season) at the same time of the year”, said a smiling Keskisalo.
