The world XC champs in Belgium are a week away, so I thought I'd get a thread started.

It looks like it'll be a good race with Bekele going for another double, and an impressive Kenyan team (not that that is a surprise). And it looks like Radcliffe will do both races as well.

The Canadian team, by the way, will have Nanaimo's local runner Steve Osaduik! Smile woop woop woop! Thumbs Up


I wish I could watch this race live, but it will probably be a couple weeks before I can see it.

Who's running for the Kenyans? Bekele should be a handful...

Yeah, I'd say those are pretty good squads!

Kenyan short course team didn't do so well.

And the Canadians did pretty well. Top non-African team Very Happy

Bekele won, no surprise there. On the IAAF site they described it as "strolling" to victory.
