    Mombasa, Kenya – Five-time World Cross Country champion Paul Tergat who is acting as one of the local Ambassadors for today’s 35th IAAF World Cross Country Championships, Mombasa, Kenya expects Ethiopia’s Kenenisa Bekele to score a record sixth victory in this afternoon’s long race.

    “There is a lot of hype for Bekele to be winning, a lot of people have very high expectations and I believe he has many advantages over other runners.”

    “Bekele has the experience that it takes to win a World Cross Country title, he also has the purpose of winning his sixth title and breaking mine and John Ngugi’s record of five victories. And this will certainly give him that extra edge that he may need.”
