Useful test in Brasschaat (BEL)

August 7th 2004 - Two weeks before his Olympic 10.000 meter race, Kamiel ran a 5.000 meter race in Brasschaat, Belgium. Kamiel finished 3rd in 13.39.03. Unfortunately, there was no pacemaker in this EAA/Flanders Cup event. The Kenyan Komen and Ethiopian Dinkessa were responsible for a lot of changes in pace. A faster time would have been nice, but this way it turned out to be a useful test for the Olympic race in which a steady pace is quite rare.

Kamiel, jammer dat het met je 5 km dit jaar niet echt meezit steeds. Maar goed, herinner je je augustus vorig jaar nog..... een dramatische vorm op de 3000 en 5000m maar een echte knal-prestatie op je 10km op de WK in Parijs!
