“This was a really good race for me today. I am so happy to be in Lausanne. On that final stretch, it was great but I just didn’t have enough in the tank to get the win today. I hope I will be back again in the future” said Berihu Aregawi

Stewart McSweyn said “I like the 3000m because you get to run with guys you don’t normally run with, due to the combination of 5k and 1500m runners. It was a bit windy today and we felt that for sure. I’m ok with my race, the guys are very talented. I want to shave about 10% off my time and prepare well in the off-season to come strong again next year.”
