8th Place in Seven Hills Run

November 19th 2006 - In and around a wet city of Nijmegen, an exciting 23rd edition of the Seven Hills Run (Zevenheuvelenloop) unfolded. At about 5k, a group of six African runners broke away from the leading pack. Moroccon Brahim Lahlafi later almost managed to get catch up with this group. Kamiel tried to stay close to the leading pack, at first accompanied by Jeroen van Damme and later on his own.

Kenyan talent Micah Kogo surprisingly took first place in 42:42, very closely followed by Abebe Dinkesa (Ethiopia), Bernard Kipyego (Kenya) and 20k World Champion Zersenay Tadesse (Eritrea). Kamiel finished 8th in 44:06. Dutchman Greg van Hest (13th), back on track, beat Jeroen van Damme at the finish line (14th).

'After the cross country race in Tilburg last week, this is another race that gives me confidence after several months of injuries' Kamiel said about his race. 'I did not run as fast as four years ago, but at that time I was in a very good shape after the European Championships in Munich and not hampered by injuries. I have been able to give all I had today, which is a good feeling. I hope I stay healthy and am preparing for a marathon in Japan. More specifically, I aim at participating in either the Tokyo marathon on February 18th or the Lake Biwa marathon on March 4th'.
