    Background: ONE OF THE TOP SPORTS EVENTS HELD ANNUALLY IN THE CZECH CAPITAL, PRAGUE, IS THE RUDE PRAVO LONG-DISTANCE RUN. THIS YEAR - THE 14TH YEAR THE EVENT HAS BEEN HELD - IT ATTRACTED A BIG FIELD OF EUROPEAN RUNNERS BUT THE WINNER WAS RACE VETERAN IVAN SHEPSHA FROM THE SOVIET UNION.

    NINETEEN COUNTRIES SENT RUNNERS TO THE RACE, WHICH COVERS A DISTANCE OF SIX KILOMETRES (3.7 MILES). BUT THE MAN WHO WAS THOUGHT MOST LIKELY TO WIN WAS BELGIUM'S ROELANTS, AN OLYMPIC AND EUROPEAN CHAMPION. ANOTHER HIGHLY RATED RUNNER WAS SOVIET CHAMPION SHARAFUTINOV.

    BUT IN THE EVENT, IT WAS IVAN SHEPSHA, AGED 28 AND A VETERAN OF FIVE RUDE PRAVO RACES, WHO WON. FINISHING STRONGLY, HE GOT TO THE FINISHING TAPE ONLY YARDS AHEAD OF THE BELGIAN ROELANTS.

    SHEPSHA'S TIME FOR THE DISTANCE WAS 17 MINUTES, 5.4 SECONDS - A RELATIVELY SLOW TIME, 25 SECONDS OUTSIDE THE COURSE RECORD.
