6K Womens Elite Winner

By the second long lap of the womens elite 6K cross country event a significant lead had opened up between this lady Yasemin Can and her Turkish (Kenyan) compatriot Akdag and Irish runner Fionnuala McCormack.  Fionnuala ran breathtakingly well and actually managed to overhaul the second place Turkish runner to finish second for the European team giving them a whitewash 1st 2nd and 3rd in the womens elite race.
