News Archive Kiplagat dominates New York Mini 10km

New York, USA - Lornah Kiplagat of the Netherlands tore away from

the field in the first few hundred yards of the 2005 New York Mini 10K

this morning in Manhattan, and ran solo to the win in 31:44. Kiplagat,

who also won the Central Park race in 2003, built an 11-second gap at

the first mile into a 34-second winning margin over Jelena Prokopcuka

of Latvia.

On a warm Manhattan morning, Kiplagat started with a

faster pace than anyone else cared to match. Prokopcuka, Benita

Johnson, Tegla Loroupe, and Margaret Okayo took turns leading the

pursuit with the field of 4700 spreading out behind them.
