Many stars add to the Campaccio starting list: Koech, Kipsiro, Kipkoech. Italian top runners Lalli and Meucci against the best runners in the world
The field of top athletes who are expected to take part in the Campaccio on 6th January 2013 at the Angelo Alberti in San Giorgio su Legnano on Sunday 6th January 2013 at 15 is taking shape with the addition of more top names. It is going to be a high-quality race which features Andrea Lalli, recently crowned the European Cross Country champion, and Daniele Meucci, European Cross Country bronze medallist in the same Budapest race.. Lalli and Meucci will not have a easy task because they will face not only the already announced names Thomas Longosiwa, Leonard Komon and Muktar Edris but also other top names like Paul Kipsiele Koech, a stand-out 3000 metres steeplechase runner. During his career he won the Olympic bronze medal in Athens, was among the best performers at the World Championships in 2005 and 2009 and won many Diamond League competitions. He ran recently on Italian soil at the Rome Golden Gala when he dominated the race in 7:54.31, setting the third fastest time in history, missing the world record by just a few hundredths of a second.
