Sergiu 49th in World Half plus more

Sergiu Ciobanu placed 49th in the World Half Marathon held in difficult conditions in Cardiff this afternoon in a time of 66.30 which no doubt Sergiu will be a little disappointed with. The race was won in 59.10 by Geoffrey Kamoror (KEN) despite him falling heavily at the start. Top Irish after a fantastic run was Paul Pollock (Annadale) in 14th place in somewhere in the 62 lows.

In the USA Aaron Hanlon got his outdoor track season underway for Providence with a 2nd place finish in the 3000 at Stony Brook Quad Meet in 8.37.03.
