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).
