Kiplimo wins gong

By Abdu Wasike

Long distance athlete Abraham Kiplimo was yesterday voted the February Nile Special/Uspa sportsman of the month of February by journalists at their monthly meeting in Lugogo. Kiplimo took the award after his great performance in Japan where he won the Beppu Oita marathon in two hours and 10 minutes. It was only his third marathon. He beat DMark Kobs Rugby Club (320 points), who won their first Nile Special Rugby Premier League in six years and KCCA FC (320), by 35 points. National Darts League champions Prisons were fourth with 195 points.
