The Gothenburglap(Göteborgsvarvet) got a nice sunny day this year too. The Kenyan runners are hopeless. They win everything here.
This is Geoffrey Yegon from Kenya, just after him came Amos Kipruto from Kenya and as third runner Leonard Langat from Kenya. Of the ten first places eight where from Kenya.
And guess who won the womens run. Yes, also a runner from kenya. Fancy Chemutal actually wrote a new laprecord for woman with her 1:07:58. Second and third where also from Kenya. The difference between mens and wemans competition where that among the weman there where other nationalities like Ethiopia and Japan. You are able to see the results out on goteborgsvarvet.se
