  • Description

    WORLD CHAMPION LONG DISTANCE RUNNER KIPCHOGE KEINO, OF KENYA, ADDED ANOTHER VICTORY TO HIS LONG LIST WHEN HE EASILY WON THE 5,000-METRES EVENT AT AN INTERNATIONAL MEETING IN LUSAKA AT THE WEEKEND. KEINO IS THE PRESENT HOLDER OF THE 3,0000-METRES WORLD RECORD.

    THE FIRST DAY OF THE TWO-DAY MEETING PROVED A DAY OF VICTORIES FOR THE KENYANS.

    THE ZAMBIAN PRESIDENT, DR. KAUNDA, WAS THERE TO GREET THE VISITING COMPETITORS, WHO CAME FROM KENYA AND TANZANIA.

    THE 5,000-METRES EVENT PROVED THE HIGHLIGHT OF THE DAY. ZAMBIA'S MARATHON CHAMPION DOUGLAS SINKALA PROVIDED LITTLE COMPETITION FOR THE KENYAN CHAMPION, WHILE THE ZAMBIAN 5,000-METRES RECORD HOLDER, BENSON MULOMBA, FOUND THE PACE TOO HOT, AND DROPPED OUT.

    TWELVE OF KENYA'S 15 CHOICES FOR THE MEXICAN OLYMPIC GAMES COMPETED AT THE MEETING, WHICH WAS ALSO CONSIDERED A WARM-UP TRIAL FOR THE ZAMBIAN COMPETITORS.
