Kipchumba's 10K

Post by up7587 on Thu Apr 21 2011, 09:10

From O-Live, a note by Ken Goe:
University of Portland junior Alfred Kipchumba won the 10,000 meters Friday at the Mount SAC Relays in 28:38.34, which puts him third on the NCAA list this season.

We were very excited, UP coach Rob Conner said. He hasnt been known as a kicker. For him to outkick a couple of guys was fun.

It was a big step forward for Kipchumba, and the warm weather in Southern California might have helped.

He is a solar-powered runner, Conner said. I think that inspired him.

Not sure the "solar-powered" quote is good for impressing future runner prospects from warmer climes. Suspect
