Junior Men's 8K Race -- Hailu Mekonnen (367) sprints to the World Junior Title -- a day after taking 3rd in the Men's Senior 4K race. "I didn't expect to win medals in both races," Mekonnen noted, "but of course I am delighted. I haven't beaten Richard Limo before, but he looked tired and I thought that I would take a chance to overtake hime with 800 meters to go."
