    17 March 2007 – The Hague, The Netherlands – Kenyan Samuel Wanjiru has again run a World record* in the Half Marathon, he run 58:35 today to win the Fortis City-Pier-City Half Marathon.

    Wanjiru also broke the 20K World record* en route with 55:31.

    The 20-year-old Kenyan's victory at the 33rd running of this Dutch race bettered his own pending record of 58:53 set in Ras al Khaimah on 9 February this year. He set a ratified World record at the distance (59:16) in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, on 11 September 2005 but this was improved by Haile Gebrselassie three months later with a 58:55 run in Phoenix Arizona (15 Jan 2006).
