Athletics: Rival seeks revenge on Radcliffe
Monday 17 January 2005
Paula Radcliffe will be challenged by Susan Chepkemei, the woman she outsprinted in the final 100 metres of last November's New York mara-thon, when she seeks a third Flora London title on 17 April.
The Kenyan, who finished sixth in the Edinburgh Cross Country won on Saturday by Ethiopia's Tirunesh Dibaba, has been signed up by organisers, who have also secured the services of Margaret Okayo and Joyce Chepchumba, both former winners, and former world record holder Tegla Loroupe.
Chepkemei could not match 19-year-old Dibaba, who retained her title over the 6.2km course, beating Australia's reigning World Cross Country champion Benita Johnson.
In the men's events, the Geordie runner Nick McCormick won the four kilometres race, while the main event, over 9.2km, went to Kenya's 20-year-old Eliud Kipchoge.
