The butterfly in the H21E-race
Again Ken Peeters:
In H21E class, Ken Peeters was the runner in good shape the previous weeks. He performed strong at the physical testrun with the national team and finished 8th at the half marathon in Leuven a few days ago.
Also today he ran a strong race, without any big mistakes he won the race 4 minutes ahead of a surprising Tomy Janssens. Tom Marien won the bronze medal ahead of his clubmates Wannes Hendrickx and Jo Linten. Winston Franssen was also fighting for the medals, but he ran the butterfly in the opposite direction, so he's disqualified. Also his brother didn't finish the race because of a knee injury.
Saartje Sallaerts is the new champion in D21E. She won by a big margin ahead of Kim Steegen and Els Put.

Adriaan Pelckmans (new elite runner) and Yannick Michiels (1st in H18): ready for topresults.
In class H21elite, it looks like the results of 2007 are copied. Again Fabien Pasquasy took the victory with a big margin ahead of Thomas van der Kleij. Fabien took an excellent start and didn't make any big mistakes. Afterwards he told us that it was even possible to run 3'30 faster (without mistakes). Ken Peeters (who became 7th at the German night champs yesterday evening) became 3rd today.
Michel Bastin showed that he's in good shape and ran the 2nd best time, but he punched a wrong control during his race.
