WANJIRU RACE BLOCKED

Athletics Weekly - - Dip Finish -

A ROAD race in Kenya in mem­ory of Sammy Wanjiru (right), was aban­doned when po­lice stopped the event tak­ing place be­cause it had not been sanc­tioned.

Ath­letes had trav­elled from around the coun­try to run in the mem­ory of the 2008 Olympic marathon cham­pion who died in 2011. But po­lice said the Nyahu­ruru sta­dium was out of bounds.
