Website ITALY 14TH WORLD UNIVERSITY CROSS-COUNTRY CHAMPIONSHIP SUCCESSFULLY FINISHED
A pleasant atmosphere (the sun was shining, a large audience), good organisation, and 149 participants: we could say that the 14th edition of the World University CrossCountry Championship, which took place on March 28th, 2004 – in Collegno, Italy, proved a success. The gold medal in women competition went to Mariem Alaoui Sel Souli (Morocco), the silver medallist is Louise Damen (Great Britain) and the bronze medalllist is Sonia Bejerano (Spain). The winner of the male competition comes from Austria: Gunther Weidlinger crossed the finish line at 32’17”, beating Karim El Mabchour from Morocco and Brahim Chettah from Algeria. Great Britain was the winner of women’s team competition, followed by Spain and Finland. The excellent team performance of Morocco led to the team’s victory; second place went to South Africa and the third place to Spain. More results: http://www.collegno2004.org
