    Eugene, Oregon, USA – Daniel Kipchirchir Komen of Kenya has often been mistaken for compatriot Daniel Komen, the current 3000m and former 5000m World record holder, but the younger Komen is starting to create his own identity after his win in the Bowerman Mile in the Prefontaine Classic on Sunday 10 June.

    The Prefontaine Classic is Grand Prix status meeting as part of the IAAF World Athletics Tour 2007.

    Komen clocked a world season leading 3:48.28 to record the fastest time run on American soil in the meet finale before a standing-room only crowd of 13,244 at the University of Oregon’s Hayward Field.
