Monte-Carlo – If there is an event on which the Kenyan hosts should count on in Mombasa, Kenya at the 35th IAAF World Cross Country Championships, 24 March 2007, it is certainly the women’s junior race.
After a clean sweep of the medals at last year’s edition in Fukuoka – the only clean sweep of those championships – Kenyan teenagers are in a strong position to achieve the same exploit next Saturday.
It would be even more dramatic if it was the same three athletes who stood on Fukuoka’s podium who managed to reiterate their achievements in Mombasa. On paper, the feat is possible given that last year’s gold, silver and bronze medallists, respectively Pauline Chemning Korikwiang, Veronica Nyaruai Wanjiru and Mercy Jelimo Kosgei are all entered in the race.
