Kenya’s Moses Kibet lived to his expectations when he won the Vidovdan Road Race 10km, that was held on Saturday (23) in Brcko, Bosnia and Hercegovina.
The 21-year-old, who was fresh from winning the La Corrida de Langueux 10km in France in a solid 28:26, controlled the race throughout and led a breakaway pack in the early stages.
Kibet was followed closely by compatriot Ezra Kering, the winner of a 10km in Stadskanaal, Netherlands, in April, clocking 29:28, Romania’s Nicolae Soare, Morocco’s Jaouad Chemlal and Derara Hurisa of Ethiopia.
Hurisa had to withdraw in the second half after feeling pain in his back that left Kibet to take control of the race cutting the tape in 28:34 and was closely followed by his country-mate Kering who crossed the line thirty five seconds later with Romanian, Soare completing the top three podium finishes in 29:17.
