World U20 3000m Champion Tadese Worku from Ethiopia will battle for the top honors at the 10k Valencia Ibercaja that will be held on Sunday (3) in Paseo de la Alameda, Valencia.
Worku comes to this race with the second fastest time this year of 26:56 that he got at the Adizero Road to Records and will be yearning for the glory after finishing second behind Rhonex Kipruto the world 10km record holder.
The Ethiopian teenager will not have an easy race as he has been named alongside Kenyan Olympian in 5000m, Weldon Kipkirui Langat who also comes with the personal best of 27:40 that he got at the same race as Worku.
Worku has had a good season as he also piped Olympic 3000m steeplechase champion Soufiane El-Bakkali from Morocco in the 3000m race at the Kamila Skolimowska Memorial, which is a World Athletics Continental Tour Gold meeting
The two have been lined up against Collins Kipkorir Koros who also carries a pb of 27:27 that he got when he finished sixth at the Adizero Road to Records.
