Bolzano - Ehiopia, Kenya’s arch-rivals in long distance running, dashed local hopes at the just-ended Boclassic Sylvesterlauf in Bolzano.
Ethiopia's Imane Merga beat the favourite, Kenya's Wilson Kiprop, and the other hopefuls to defend his 10km men’s race.
Merga retained his championship title in a time of 28:44 while the Kenyan marathon athlete came second, but surprisingly within the same time.
“I am proud to have won for the third time,” an excited Merga said after the race.
