MOKOKA SETS SEASON’S BEST IN EUGENE
Stephen Mokoka took 17th place in the men’s 10 000m race on Saturday morning (SA time) at the Prefontaine Classic track and field meeting in Eugene, Oregon, which formed the fourth leg of the IAAF Diamond League series.
Turning out as the lone SA representative at the two-day event, Mokoka clocked 27:48.84 to set a season’s best, though he crossed the line eight seconds outside his four-year-old career record.
Mo Farah of Great Britain, the world and Olympic champion, won the race in 26:53.71.
The fifth leg of the Diamond League campaign will be held in Rome on June 2.
