Townsville Bulletin - - Bizfi Nd -

RIS­ING Aus­tralian dis­tance run­ning stars Jeff Rise­ley and Ben St Lawrence turned in world-class per­for­mances against two of track and field’s global stars at the Mel­bourne Track Clas­sic last night. Rise­ley put Bei­jing Olympic champ As­bel Kiprop of Kenya to the sword in the 1500m for the sec­ond straight year in Mel­bourne. And St Lawrence nearly caused an even big­ger boilover be­fore fin­ish­ing sec­ond to 2007 world champ Bernard La­gat in the 5000m.
