Forde clinches Suriname 10km road race
-Morgan places second
Different country but the same taste of victory for Cleveland Forde.
Guyana’s premier distance runner dubbed ‘Little Kenyan’ followed up October’s victory in the initial leg of the 11th South American 10km Road Race Classic by winning Suriname’s leg on Sunday.
Forde, 28, took the top honours in the annual event which was staged in Paramaribo after clocking 32 minutes and 50 seconds despite running 14 seconds slower than the first leg which was held on local soil.
He led Trinidad and Tobago’s Richard Jones and Guyana’s Kelvin Johnson onto the podium.
Guyana’s Cleveland Thomas was fourth.
