Ebensee:victory for Arslan Ahmed and Andrea Mayr. A sad sports day for the death of Günther Lemmerer - 10 August 2010 Print
ebensee_2010_start.jpgFor once, before talking about a race on behalf of the WMRA we turn our attention to a tragic incident that has marred the event: the day before the race, the President of the LOC, Günther Lemmerer, died in a fatal car accident.
In honour of Günther Lemmerer, who selflessly devoted his life to athletics and sport, the race was still disputed.

The WMRA extends condolences to the family of Günther Lemmerer, to the LOC of the race and to OELV.

The Turkish Arslan Ahmed and Austrian Andrea Mayr were the winners of the race valid as 3rd race of the WMRA Grand Prix 2010.

The second "Harakiri Run" was also the second event of the WMRA Grand Prix 2010 circuit.

Excellent conditions with sunny but not hot weather and dry course announced attack to the course record set at the first edition in 2009.

A short view to the start list was just an approval of the attack to the best course times, especially in the men's race. Jonathan Wyatt, 6-times World champion, Ahmet Arslan, 4-times European Champion, Schneider from Suisse, strong Kenyan squad and many other strong international runners gathered on a start line in front of "EuropaHaus" in Mayrhofen.
