Mombasa , Kenya – The theme for these 35th IAAF World Cross Country Championships, the first ever hosted by Cross Country powerhouse Kenya , was ‘Cross Country Comes Home’. With their overwhelming victories in the both the men’s and women’s junior races, that often heard slogan certainly rang true.
From the podium sweep in the junior women’s race that opened the competition to the top-four sweep in the junior men’s, the hosts clearly illustrated that, for now, no nation on earth can match the cross country depth produced in this east African nation.
But while their dominance was clear, the brutally hot and humid conditions that may come to define these championships made their respective victories anything but a Sunday walk in the park.
