Dieter Kersten and Steven Casteele have Saturday in the Dutch Lead the limit for the european CHAMPIONSHIPS of athletics in Berlin in the 10,000 meter run. They are with their 28:46.25 and 28:48.36, however, is not in the best of three Belgians, and may be subject to cancellation, not to the european CHAMPIONSHIPS. Soufiane Bouchikhi, Bashir Abdi and Simon Debognies did rather better.
The sharpest three Belgian times for the EC are still at 27:41.20 for Bouchikhi, 28:15.58 for Abdi and 28:25.32 for Debognies. The same Debognies won Saturday at the Flanders Cup in Huizingen the 3,000 meters in 8:08.07.
Local crowd-puller Jonathan Sacoor found in Huizingen all the way just to stand in the 400 metres. To him still what companion to offer, were two young clubmembers called, but the ambition of Sacoor to the Belgian record U20 from 45.86 to tighten, if he store. He ran solo for a nice 46.38.
