Satisfying sub-29 10 K in The Hague

October 22nd 2006 - Kamiel chose the Parnassia Laan van Meerdervoortloop in The Hague as the venue for his first race after the marathon at the European Championships in August. The race was held on a point-to-point course on the 'Laan van Meerdervoort', claimed to be the longest lane in Europe. The pace was kept high right from the start despite the strong headwind. Kamiel was in the first group with Juwawo Wirimai, David Kipngetich and Jamal Baligha during the entire run. The race was decided in the last 300 meter. Wirimai was the fastest, immediately followed by Kipngetich and Maase. A very satisfactory race for Kamiel and a surprisingly fast 28:41 in his first race in more than 2 months.

Kamiel remarks: "I have been experiencing many aches and pains before and after the European Championships in Gothenburg. I returned from a short holiday just one week ago and I visited my sports physician to discuss my physical discomfort just this past Wednesday. Coming back with a sub-29 after only a few weeks of very moderate training makes me happy and gives me confidence. More important races are coming up in November and I hope my fitness will have improved by then. Let's just hope the injuries don't come back".
