Jepkosgei's gun-to-tape display of brilliance

The elegant Kenyan tore a page from the Filbert Bayi manual of Front-Running, photocopied it, crumpled the pages into a ball, and bounced them off the heads of her opponents.

Kipruto leads Kenyan Steeplechase sweep, first since 1997

The Kenyan trio gave their opponents plenty of opportunity to lead, and even threaten to win. But when it came to the last 300 metres, they were the only men in it.
