The All-African Games Silver medallist, Edward Zakayo Pingua, ran the fastest time ever Mexican soil at the Obesity Not 4 Me 10k Road Race held on Sunday (18) in Tijuana, Mexico.
The 20 year-old who holds a life time best of 13:03.19 in 5,000m that he got at the 2019 Golden Gala, battled for honors with his compatriot Felix Kiptarus Korir who pushed him to the final stages of the race, but the World U20 5,000m champion, managed to beat him with a killer kick that he could not respond to, crossing the finish line in a time of 27:55. Korir was left with no option but to settle in second place in 28:20.
Mexican born-American Diego Estrada Constantino closed the podium three finishes with a personal best of 28:29.
Jose Luis Santana was the first Mexican to cross the line in position four with a personal best of 28:31 with Alberto Gonzalez coming in fifth place with a personal best and Guatemala National Record of 28:33.
