    The Kenyan city of Mombasa plays host to the eagerly anticipated 35th IAAF World Cross Country Championships (24 March 2007) but looking at the event’s past might draw some important conclusions for Saturday’s race.

    In the 35-year history of the event only 15 men have ever lifted the senior men’s long course crown – and of these only six have been solo winners of the event with nine athletes boasting at least one successful defence.

    It is a similar trend with the women. Of their 18 champions – 11 have won the title at least twice or more and there have been seven athletes who have successful defended their titles.
