Overview by IAAF   stadio olimpico rome 
One of the biggest surprises of the championships was the performance of Japanese-based Kenyan Wakiihuri. He was one of a group of 18 which formed in pursuit of the early leader Maher. In 83% humidity, the Canadian raced through the first half of the race in 65:37 but thereafter the chasers began to gain. The pack, down to six, caught the Canadian at 28Km. Wakiihuri, Salah and Moneghetti broke away after 35Km, before a 15:13 split by the Kenyan gave him a winning lead of 30 seconds.
