Menjo to grace Australia

SYDNEY, December 1 – Kenyan Josphat Menjo, the fastest 10,000m track runner in the world this year, will compete in next week's Zatopek Classic in Melbourne, organisers said on Wednesday.
Menjo, 31, put in the fastest 10,000m track performance of 2010 (26:56.74) and sits second on the year’s world list for the 10km road event (27:04).

After a string of strong performances over the European summer, Menjo is expected to pressure the Zatopek race record held by countryman Luke Kipkosgei (27:22.54) at Olympic Park.

"This has been my best season. In Melbourne, I come to win and run fast," Menjo said in a statement.

Among Menjo’s major challengers is defending champion and Australian 10,000m record holder Collis Birmingham.

The Zatopek Classic takes place on December 9.
