Hiko doubles up!

The performance of D.S.D’s Hiko Tonosa defied all running logic, as he put up an astounding performance at Le Cheile (IMC) International in Leixlip on Saturday.  Having paced a 3,000m earlier in the day, he turned up to pace the international race an hour and a half later.   Much to the astonishment of all present, he decided having fulfilled his pace making duties, to continue on to the finish line, with a broad grin on his face.   Maybe his acceptance on the Refugee Status programme inspired him to add to his National 10k Championship victory a month ago.  Hiko cannot wait to be allowed to wear an Irish vest in a major competition, and will now concentrate on achieving the Olympic qualifying time for 5,000m, where he is only 5 seconds short of his objective (13.31.2 PB).
