Bekele takes 4k title in Lausanne

Victory sets Bekele to take double double

Bekele 4k title 200329 March 2003 – Avenche, Switzerland – Ethiopia’s Kenenisa Bekele defended his short course title in spectacular ways..

This year he was not going to be the ‘surprise package of 2003’, he was a watched man, pursued by 4 Kenyans right from the start. The packing of the Kenyans in the first 10 was evident and the little Ethiopian was in for a rough ride.

However, he proved his true value as a cross country exponent when he pulled away from Kenya’s finest over the last 200m.

The manner with which he did this showed that he still carried much in the tank and tomorrow’s long course double looks like as though it may be on.

Bekele finished in a time of 11:01, 3 seconds ahead of John Kibowen with Benjamin Limo third. John Kibowen has won this title on 2 occasions previously, before the rise of Ethiopia and the World’s brightest prospect.
