Kamiel 4th in Warandeloop

November 12th 2006 - The Warandeloop in Tilburg is the biggest cross country event in the Netherlands. The men's elite field features more and more European cross country runners every year. Today Kamiel joined them and finished 4th after an exciting race. It was only in the last lap that Swiss runner Christian Belz (4th in Gothenburg on the 10000 meter) and Irishman Peter Murray managed to force a small gap with Gert-Jan Liefers and the others in the first group. Kamiel moved up a number of places and almost caught Gert-Jan in the final 2400 meter lap. Gert-Jan however is a fast finisher and secured his 3rd place, a couple of seconds ahead of Kamiel. Next week Kamiel will run the Zevenheuvelenloop ('Seven Hills Run'), a big 15 K road race event in and around Nijmegen.
