SAN SILVESTRE

Jacob Kiplimo celebrates early, loses San Silvestre de Sao Paulo at the finish line

Kenyan runner Kibiwott Kandie produces a burst of pace to take the Sao Paulo San Silvestre at the line from Jacob Kiplimo, a teenager from Uganda, who had been leading for the entire race.

Jacob Kiplomo led the 95th San Silvestre de Sao Paulo Road Race on Tuesday in Brazil from pretty much start to finish, but as he reached the finish line and started celebrating he was stunned to see Kibiwott Kandie produce a stunning burst of pace to catch up and take the win by mere centimetres.
