Arikan wins EC 10000m

Arikan EC10

Turkey’s Polat Kemboi Arikan and Spain’s Trihas Gebre produced superb performances to win the individual races at the 19th European Cup 10,000m in Chia-Pula on Saturday evening.

Last December they were both on the podium at the SPAR European Cross Country Championships in Samokov and now they were back celebrating more success at a major European Athletics event.

In hot conditions in Sardinia, it was another landmark show from Arikan as not only did he defend his title, he achieved victory for the third time after his first success in 2012.

On the back of his senior race success in Samokov, he has proved once again to be a man who can respond brilliantly to the different surfaces.

Gebre, a team silver medallist from the senior women’s race in December, was in commanding form as she won by almost 18 seconds.

It was a good night for the host nation, too, as Italy’s men took the team prize and Great Britain were crowned the women’s team champion.
