  • Description

    KIPCHOGE KEINO OF KENYA FAILED IN HIS BID TO BREAK THE WORLD ONE MILE RECORD AT THE WELSH GAMES IN CARDIFF TODAY (SATURDAY).

    ALTHOUGH HE HAD OUTSTRIPPED THE REST OF THE FIELD KEINO WAS TIRING AT THE END OF HIS RUN AND WAS NOT ABLE TO BEAT EVEN HIS OWN BEST TIME.

    THE 26 YEARS OLD KENYAN POLICEMAN WON THE EVENT IN 3 MINUTES 57.6 SECONDS - 6.3 SECONDS OUTSIDE THE WORLD RECORD SET BY JIM RYUN OF AMERICA IN JULY.

    AT THE END OF THE RACE KEINO SAID HE HAD FOUND THE WIND TOO STRONG AND HAD FELT VERY TIRED, PARTICULARLY AS THERE WAS NO-ONE RUNNING WITH HIM.

    THE NEAREST RUNNER, DEREK GRAHAM OF NORTH IRELAND WHO CAME SECOND, WAS FIFTY YARDS BEHIND WHEN REINO CROSSED THE TAPE. JOHN WHETTON OF BRITAIN WAS THIRD.

    KEINO'S BEST TIME FOR THE MILE, SET LAST MONTH, WAS 3 MINUTES 53.3 SECONDS.
