NEWS...

CHEBET, SHMYRKO BANNED FOR DOPING

Two prominent athletes received four-year bans last week for doping.

Two-time IAAF World Cross Country Championships gold medalist, Emily Chebet of Kenya, was banned for four years 

for using Furosemide, a "loop diuretic" which is used as a masking agent. She failed an out-of-competition test 

in June and her ban began 17 July, 2015.  She loses no previous results.  

Three-time Osaka Women's Marathon champion, Tetyena (Gamera) Shmyrko of Ukraine, was also banned for four years, 

through September, 2019, and all of her results have been annulled from 28 August, 2011.  As such, she loses her 

2013, 2014 and 2015 Osaka titles (also second place in 2012), her 5th place finish at the 2012 London Olympic 

Marathon, and her national marathon record of 2:22:09 set in Osaka this year.

Shmyrko was banned for irregularities in her biological passport.

to 24:19, six seconds faster than originally reported --Ed.

MANCHESTER, CONN. (26-Nov) -- There was something old and something new at this morning's 79th Manchester Road 

Race here, New England's most prestigious Thanksgiving Day race.  Defending women's champion Diane Nukuri of 

Burundi prevailed once again in convincing fashing, while former University of Oregon star Will Geoghegan got 

his first victory on Main Street here in a close sprint finish in his first appearance.  Some 12,000 runners 

competed on a seasonally mild and sunny day.

BATES GIVES NUKURI EARLY CHALLENGE

Nukuri, who finish eighth in last month's Bank of America Chicago Marathon, may have come into today's race with 

more tired legs than her competitors, but with far more experience.  Today marked the sixth appearance here for 

the 30 year-old athlete after first running the race back in 2008.  She had finished on the podium three time 

before, and considers Manchester something of a second home.

"I love it here.  I might move here," quipped Nukuri, who lives in Flagstaff, Az., after the race.

After the flat opening mile, the race moves steeply uphill on Highland Street for more than a mile.  Organizers 

placed a stripe in the road just ahead of the two-mile mark, and the first male and female athletes to hit that 

mark collect an extra $1000.  That's where Nukuri felt her first big challenge.  Former Boise State star Emma 

Bates spurted ahead of Nukuri and Canadian 10,000m record holder Natasha Wodak to pick up the "Queen of the 

Hill" prime.  Seeds of doubt crept into Nukuri's mind.

"I don't know what her name is, the girl who got the uphill challenge," Nukuri said of Bates.  "She was strong, 

and I felt like the girls who were right behind me were still right there.  And you know, when you get on top of 

the hill together, anything can happen."

But Nukuri knew the big downhill in the third mile was just ahead after the race turned left onto Porter Street. 

 She hadn't redlined her heart on the climb, and was ready to take full advantage of the downhill.  Experience 

pays.

"That's what I did last year, exactly the same strategy," Nukuri said of attacking on the downhill.  "I just 

tried to finish that last two miles. I was thinking, if I could run 5 minutes (per mile) or under maybe they can 

match it, but that's pretty fast."

They couldn't.  Nukuri came to the uphill finish on Main Street with a comfortable margin on both Wodak and 

Bates.  Nukuri was timed in 24:19, her fastest time ever here in six attempts.

"I love it here," Nukuri said again.  "This is one of my favorite races."

Wodak clinched second in 24:31 and Bates got third in 24:44.  Maddie Van Beek (25:04) and Hannah Davidson 

(25:08) rounded out the top-5 finishers.


GEOGHEGAN UPSETS LOCAL OLYMPIAN CABRAL

The crowd lining the 4.748-mile course were only cheering for one athlete in the lead pack of four which had 

developed in the men's race by the three-mile mark: Donn Cabral.  Cabral, an Olympic steeplechaser, grew up in 

nearby Glastonbury and has run the race since he was a child.  He's never won here, and he saw today as his best 

chance.

"I was feeling pretty good today; it was a great opportunity," Cabral told reporters.  "I felt like this was 

really the year to take the win at Manchester in front of my home crowd.  Everyone was cheering along the way.  

It was really special."

Cabral asserted himself early. After a 4:22 opening mile led by 2012 Manchester champion Aaron Braun, Cabral 

pushed the pace up the Highland Street hill.  He put in a little surge to collect the "King of the Hill" bonus, 

then hit the two-mile mark with a one-step lead in 9:26."

"The race was perfectly set-up for me," the 25 year-old Cabral explained.  "The first mile was reasonable.  This 

was the best I've ever felt on the hill."

But as the four men's leaders --Braun, Cabral, Geoghegan and Maverick Darling-- started to plunge down Porter 

Street, Braun used the tactic he used to win her before.  Like Nukuri, he stepped on the gas down the hill, 

nearly putting Darling out of podium contention (he later caught up).  When the four hit the three mile mark 

together in 13:51, Braun feared it would become a kicker's race."

"There's a group of four-minute milers in there," Braun later lamented.

The course has a valley finish: first it goes down, then there is a short but steep climb to the finish line.  

Geoghegan, 23, who indeed has a 3:57.53 mile to his credit, started his sprint from perhaps 400 meters out.  

Braun was out the back, and only Cabral tried to cover his move.

"Just that last 100, 150 (meters) when the downhill levels out I was trying to go stride-for-stride with Donn," 

Geoghegan told Race Results Weekly.  "I knew I was making ground on him."

Cabral was pumping his arms furiously, trying to stay in the taller Geoghegan's slipstream.  But the former 

Princeton athlete was clearly in pain, and couldn't hold Geoghegan's pace in the final push to the line.  He was 

so close to winning, but it wasn't going to happen today.

"Honestly, the pain in my body was the last part I was feeling," said the downcast Cabral, shaking his head.

Geoghegan, who grew up in Brunswick, Me., and knew of Manchester's history, raised his hands and smiled as he 

broke the tape in 21:34, exactly the same time as last year's winner, Ben True, who did not compete this year.  

The win definitely had extra meaning for him given that he grew up in New England.

"It's great.  This is a legendary race," said Geoghegan.  "To be able to come in here and run well my first time 

is awesome."

Cabral got second in 21:36, and Darling held on for third in 21:42.  Braun finished fourth (21:48) and Tim 

Ritchie got fifth (21:55).

Well behind the winners, former Runner's World editor Amby Burfoot, 69, finished the race for the 53rd 

consecutive time.  He was timed in 35:56.

CROSS COUNTRY...

Liverpool Cross Challenge & European XC Trials
Sefton Park, Liverpool, GBR; Saturday, November 28
Distances: See below 
   NOTE: Recap by Assistant Editor CHRIS LOTSBOM --Ed.

In what was the primary selection race for Britain's team for the upcoming European Cross Country Championships, 

Gemma Steel won the women's senior race here for the third consecutive year, defeating former Iona Gael and NCAA 

Cross Country champion Kate Avery, as well as Steph Twell.  Laura Muir, the 1500m ace, was fifth.
 
"I’ve done the hat trick! You can never underestimate the likes of Steph and Kate; I’ve never raced [Avery] on 

this course before. I thought I’d slipped up a bit on the final corner and it brought back memories of Samokov," 

the victor Steel told British Athletics. "It’s got rid of the rust. It was my first cross country race of the 

season. It’s given me such a big boost ahead of the Europeans though. It would be nice to win a medal in France 

and keep my medal winning streak going."

Ross Millington ran away with the men's title; Bobby Clay and Ben Dijkstra were junior champions.

It should be noted that --judging from images taken at the event-- conditions were tough with lots of mud.

SR/U23 MEN (9.8 km) -
