Hot Pace from the Gun



The 5K tonight on paper looks to be a lock with Rupp, Lagat and Lomong. The 5k, more so than any other event, looks to have the top 3 locked in. With Lagat, Lomong and Rupp in solid form it seems hard to imagine someone else sneaking in the top 3. Stranger things have happened and there is a race for a reason, but it will be a big surprise if one of the top 3 falters.  Top 3 is not enough for these competitors, all 3 want to win the championship. Watch for Rupp to start grinding the pace down with 4 laps to go and Lopez and Lagat sitting for the kick. It shoud be a great race!

HONOLULU (09-Dec) -- Winning 17 NCAA titles earned Edward Cheserek the nickname "King Cheserek" during his record-breaking career at the University of Oregon where he became the most decorated runner in NCAA history.  He lived up to that moniker at the second annual Kalakaua Merrie Mile in Waikiki here this morning, not only winning the men's race but also the gender challenge after a surprisingly tough fight to the finish against Kenyan teenager Merriam Cherop.  Cheserek, a Kenyan who has lived in the Unites States since he was a teenager, clocked 3:58.1, just nipping Cherop in the last five meters.
