NAIROBI, Jan. 20 (Xinhua) -- Ethiopian running legend Haile Gebrselassie has called upon athletes to shun doping and compete on a clean slate.

 

Gebrselassie, who is also the president of Ethiopian Athletics Federation, said that there was no short cut to glory adding that people must work hard for their success.

 

"Athletes should sweat for success. Kenya and Ethiopia must fight doping because they are the leading countries in the world in long distance running from 5,000m to the marathon," the retired track great remarked during a gala event to reward Kenya's most outstanding sports personalities on Thursday night.

 

Kenya, which has had 43 doping cases confirmed in the last three years, won all the medals on offer to retain the overall title. The team is expected in Nairobi later on Tuesday.

 

The Sport Personality of the Year Awards (SOYA) are annual national awards given for sports personalities in Kenya and were initiated by former world marathon record holder, Paul Tergat, in 2004.

 

Tergat said the occasion is the finest moment in the sporting calendar in Kenya because it rewards success.

 

"The year 2016 was a most challenge period with ups and downs, but today we are gathered here in a celebratory mood to pay tribute to gallant sportsmen and women," Tergat told the audience.

 

"During our time, Gebrselassie and I competed fairly when there were no underhand dealings and when sport was sport," the SOYA founder remarked.

 

During the occasion Olympic 5,000m champion and 10,000m silver medalist, Vivian Cheruiyot was crowned the most outstanding Kenyan sports personality of 2016.

 

Cheruiyot took the opportunity to announce her entry into road racing and sounded a warning shot to Ethiopian runners, adding that her debut race will be the London Marathon in April.

 

"Haile, go and announce to your runners that there is a new kid on the block and they should watch out," she joked.

GLENEAGLES puma creepers green australia , Scotland, Sept 28 - Europe maintained their Ryder Cup stranglehold over the United States with a crushing five-point victory on Sunday as rookie Jamie Donaldson had the honor of securing the decisive point to make it eight wins in the last 10 matches.

 

Starting the day 10-6 up, Europe needed four points to retain the trophy they won after coming back from the same score two years ago and got there with plenty to spare puma creepers purple australia , winning the singles battle 6-12 - 5-12 for an overall 16-12 - 11-12 victory.

 

The result was a ringing endorsement for the sensitive and thoughtful captaincy of Paul McGinley, who joins the Ryder Cup Hall of Fame having also sunk the putt that won the trophy in 2002.

 

"I did the easy bit, and I really mean that puma creepers grey australia ," said McGinley.

 

"I know how difficult it is to play in a Ryder Cup. I know when your heart is jumping out of your chest how incredibly excited and nervous you are. But we relish this challenge. We did it with a smile on our face, which is so important, and we did everybody proud I think."

 

If it was all champagne and smiles for the hosts puma creepers brown australia , the American team's week ended in somewhat, and unusually, acrimonious style when Phil Mickelson slammed the tactics of his captain Tom Watson puma creepers red australia , who he said had not engaged with his players and should have used the "pod" system that worked so well for their last victory in 2008.

 

No amount of engagement, planning or even podding could have stopped Rory McIlroy on Sunday as his superlative 5&4 demolition of Rickie Fowler set Europe on their way.

 

Graeme McDowell, who fought back from three down at the turn puma creepers black australia , then beat Jordan Spieth to add a second point.

 

American rookie Patrick Reed completed a wonderful personal weekend when he got his side's first point, with Mickelson and Matt Kuchar also victorious, but there was no real sense of tension as Europe were well placed in so many other matches.

 

Martin Kaymer puma creepers beige australia , who sunk the putt to complete the Miracle of Medinah two years ago, chipped in for an eagle to beat Bubba Watson 4&2 and Justin Rose, Europe's stand-out performer with four points from five matches puma creepers white australia , came back from four down to halve with Hunter Mahan.

 

Then began the biennial Ryder Cup game of trying to work out who would secure the decisive point, and it turned out to be the 38-year-old Welshman Donaldson.

 

Four up with four to play he had already ensured Europe would at least half the match and retain the cup but he made sure he finished in style by hitting a stunning approach to within two feet o. Cheap Jerseys From China   Cheap Jerseys Shop   Cheap Jerseys From China   Cheap NFL Jerseys   Cheap NFL Jerseys   Cheap NFL Jerseys From China   Cheap Football Jerseys   Cheap Football Jerseys   Cheap Football Jerseys   Wholesale Jerseys
