    TRANSCRIPT (SEQ 8):



    INTERVIEWER: "You dictated the pace on Saturday. Is this the way you like to run a race?



    KEINO: Not really but I feel I should run on Saturday. That was you know qualification but...



    INTERVIEWER: You'd like more competition in the final perhaps...pushing you.



    KEINO: Well....I run like anyone else taking part. I don't have any.. I can't tell you how I'll run because I don't know. I know it's going to be a tough competition.



    INTERVIEWER: The wind was pretty strong on Saturday. How did this affect you.



    KEINO: Well I didn't feel anything about the wind on Saturday. I feel a little bit at the beginning but later on I didn't feel anything.



    INTERVIEWER: And just to give us an indication of what this kind of race takes out of the runner competing in it, what this kind of weight loss do you suffer during a race of this kind.



    KEINO: Loss of weight?



    INTERVIEWER: Loss of weight?



    KEINO: Well on the event especially like 5,000 metres I lose about 10 pounds, but in 1500 metres I lose about five pounds.



    INTERVIEWER: And looking ahead to the 5,000 metres that is quite a way ahead at the moment would you like to see Ron Clark in there competing against you.



    KEINO: Well I would like to see him running and I feel I should, you know, he's...garbled...but I feel if Ron Clark was to come in, well if he was really fit he would win a medal.



    INTERVIEWER: Yes well we're all looking for that...that's the big one, a great race...



    KEINO: You know he lost Saturday's meeting and I feel he should have won a gold for his retirement."

    Background: Kip Keino, Kenya's Olympic gold medal long distance runner, has been training hard with his team-mates for this week's track events at the Commonwealth Games at Edinburgh.

    The Kenyan team, sent to Scotland with instructions from President Kenyatta to win medals to boost their country's image, are among the best organised of the African contingents competing at the Games. After a six a.m. road work session on Monday (20 July) they were out in Meadowbank Stadium four hours later training again under the watchful eye of coast Charles Mukora.

    Later Keino spoke about his easy victory in Saturday's qualification heat for 1500 metres final on Wednesday (22 July).
