International Chiba Ekiden 2012

Robertson brothers had run very fast being winners of both their legs.Zane run a 13'29 quite close to CR of course and Jake won in 28.40 an amazing middle 10k.
Kenya has to thank the women:Gladys Cherono run her 5k in 14'54 giving 28 sec to the second team,Priscah Jeptoo in 15'40 giving 30sec to japanese-team and Joyce Chepkirui run the last leg in 22'05 giving 21sec also her to japan.
Mosima far from his best condition taking in fifth leg more than one minute from Galen Rupp..American was in my opinion MVP with Priscah Jeptoo.Galen run very sure in a not easy leg and didn't fear about the rain.
Japan was a great suprise feeling very much running at home while USA run a solid competition with a good team where also Jacob Riley run very fast in his legs and Neely Spence took a easy third place being so far from the top..
well done guys!!
