Olympics to attract attention the way they sabotaged

By John Kwoba

NAIROBI air max 90 bianche scontate , Oct. 17 (Xinhua) -- Fast time and quest for first marathon victory is what will inspire Olympic champion Vivian Cheruiyot of Kenya in her second shot at the 42km distance on the streets of Frankfurt on Oct. 29.

The 34-year-old has made a late transition from track to marathon, having debut in London in April where she finished fourth in a strong elite group clocking 2:23.50.

But with a realistic chance of pocketing about 35,300 U.S. dollars being bonus fee to run under 2:21:01 air max 90 bianche , set five years ago by course record holder Ethiopian Meselech Melkamu, the Kenyan will be more than happy to hit two birds with one stone.

"I am looking forward to running the second marathon of my career in Frankfurt," Cheruiyot said. "I won my first World Championship title in Germany in 2009 and will try to get my first big marathon victory there in 2017."

"The important thing is to improve on my personal best time. It will show development in my career as a marathon runner scarpe air max 90 saldi , but winning is the most important."

Cheruiyot's appearance will be the first by an Olympic champion in the Frankfurt Marathon, this year marking its 26th edition.

The list of her achievements is impressive which includes not only that Rio title, but five World Championship gold medals as well. In 2011 in Daegu she won both the 5 air max 90 outlet saldi ,000m and 10,000m titles.

After an extraordinary career on the track, Cheruiyot has a new target in view: achieving similar excellence in the marathon.

The Kenyan runner made her debut at the distance in London this April air max 90 italia , and Frankfurt will be her second marathon and the Kenyan is confident of making considerable improvement if conditions are good.

"The challenge from other runners will inspire me. It is what you expect in any big competition. I will happily take that in my strides. But to win in Frankfurt will be a major statement and endorsement of my career plans," she said.

After her fourth place finish in London in April, Cheruiyot clocked 1:07:44 for her personal best in the half marathon last month at the Great North Run air max 90 outlet italia , finishing second.

"I have heard very good things about the Frankfurt organization, atmosphere and course from some of my friends and training partners who have won there before. I saw some photos of the red carpet finish and hope I will be smiling when I cross the finish line on Oct. 29."

When looking up Namibia in your travel guidebook you will read about the vast open plains of the Etosha National Park, the small coastal resort of Swakopmund with its old colonial buildings or the red sand dunes surrounding Sossusvlei and Deadvlei. But rarely do you come across an article that explains in detail the different desert environments that make up the south of our beautiful country called Namibia.

Coinciding with the "International Year of Deserts and Desertification" Gondwana Desert Collection in partnership with Open Africa and other stakeholders have launched a wide-ranging tourism route through the 4 deserts of Namibia. This aptly named "Four Deserts Route air max 90 donna saldi , Namibia" covers the whole of southern Namibia from the Tropic of Capricorn down to the Orange River.

In the east is the Kalahari Desert with its red sand dunes that are partially covered in grasses, shrubs and old camelthorn trees. Even though surface water is a rarity the Kalahari is home to fast numbers of antelope, predators and a surprising number of birds. The Kalahari Anib Lodge air max 90 uomo saldi , Bagatelle Game Ranch and the Intu Africa Game Reserve to name but a few, are located within the perimeter of he Kalahari and are an ideal first night stop-over en route.

The Nama Karoo is characterized by dwarf shrub and scattered grassland and has as its distinctive feature the well know quiver tree. The deep gorges of the Fish River Canyon fall within this desert environment as well as the canyons of the Zebra River. Animals such as the indigenous Mountain Zebra can be found here. All four Canon Properties; Canon Lodge, Canon Village air max 90 woven scontate , Canon Roadhouse and Canon Mountain Camp as well as Zebra River Lodge are ideal overnight stops en route through the second desert to visit.

Situated around the historic town of Aus and extending south into Namaqualand of South Africa the Succulent Karoo is the third desert on our route to be visited. This environment is unique in that it receives winter rains and as such has specially adapted plants to survive the dry summer months. This desert is known as one of the most plant diverse in the world and has been listed as one of the world's 25 global biodiversity 'hotspots'. After the rains this seemingly dry and arid landscape turns into a spectacle of color as the many different plants flower. Animal life is reduced to small antelope and rodents, but fascinating enough are the wild desert horses resident just west of Aus. Klein Aus Vista just west of Aus offers beautiful accommodation in bungalows at Desert Horse Inn and rock chalets at Eagle's Nest. The newly renovated Bahnhof Hotel in Aus also provides a comfortable bed for the weary traveler.

The fourth and last desert on our Route is the most well known of them all - the Namib Desert. This desert comprises of just a narrow strip along the cold Atlantic Ocean with red dunes (the highest in the word) in the south, gravel plains and inselbergs in the central parts and blue mountains with deep valleys in the north. The Namib reaches as far north as southern Angola and is home to the pre-historic Welwitschia plant. Fog coming in from the Atlantic supplies the life-giving moisture to plants and animals. The Namib offers a whole array of lodges and guest farms for travelers to Sossusvlei and the Namib Naukluft Park. Desert Homestead air max 90 vt uomo , Tsauchab River Lodge and Bullsport Guest Farm are but a few establishments where guests can stay for their last overnight on the 'Four Deserts Route'.
