ROADRUNNING-FRANCE: Kenya’s Ndiwa takes women’s 10k title in Paris
Paris, Jan. 1, 2018 (AltAfrika/ANA) – Julien Wanders of Switzerland and Kenyan Stacy Ndiwa claimed the titles at the Corrida Pedestre Internationale de Houilles, in Paris, as the 46th edition of the IAAF Silver Label road race was held in windy and rainy conditions on Sunday.
Ndiwa of Kenya fulfilled her role of favourite in the women’s race. She led the race from start to finish to win in 31:35, placing 35th overall.
Her compatriot Evaline Chirchi, whose only outing this season was a 48:54 performance over 15km in Nijmegen, wasn’t able to sustain the pace and eventually drifted to second.
