Aussie Mottram wins Central Park race - Breaking News - Sport - Breaking News: "Aussie Mottram wins Central Park race

May 21, 2006 - 6:39AM

Australian athlete Craig Mottram just missed out on the course record in winning the Healthy Kidney 10km in Central Park.

Mottram finished in 28 minutes, 13 seconds, coming up 3 seconds shy of the mark set by Kenyan Paul Koech in 1997. He missed out on a $US10,000 ($A13,110) bonus, which was offered to anyone who broke the record.

Britain's Mo Farah was second in 28:37 after catching American Anthony Famiglietti, who was third in 28:40, and Linus Maiyo of Kenya, fourth in 28:46.

Mottram made his break just before the start of the major inclines on the course. His move stretched the field, with only Famiglietti and Maiyo trying to stay with him. But Mottram pulled away, steadily increasing his lead. He went through the halfway mark under the record pace in 14:04.

Looking comfortable throughout, Mottram's only display of strain came when he saw the clock tick past the 28:10 mark as he closed in on the finish.

'I knew I was on the pace but it was a lonely second half of the race,' Mottram said.

"I could have done it with someone out there with me, like (Famiglietti), because it can be quite disorientating out there in the park on your own, you don't really know where you are on the course.

"But I still won the race and that was my main aim and I was 15 seconds faster than when I won last year, so those things were good and I can't be too disappointed.

"I'll just have to come back and try again next year."

Great run Craig, wish I could have been there to see it. Some day soon I'll be on you shoulder.
