Soufiane Bouchikhi is Saturday, on a beautiful but ungrateful fourth place finish at the Great Edinburgh Xcoutry, one of the most prestigious cross-country in the world. Bouchikhi lap in the final lap just shortage to be on stage, to end up. The profits went to the American Leonard Korir.
Last year was Bouchikhi al eighth, but now he did even a lot better. He ran the entire race, considerate, up front, without the kopwerk. The leading group was little by little thinned out under the impulse of the Brit Ben Connor and the Turkish European champion Kaan Kigen Ozbilen. In the penultimate round were only four athletes, and our countryman was still in the.
In the final was Bouchikhi net deficit for the podium. He finished in the same second as the Turkish number three, Aras Kaya, on place four. At the spurt of the American Korir fell nothing to start.
For the women it was the victory for the Turkish Yasemin Can, which in Kenya is born and still lives. They took it for the British Emelia Gorecka.
