Bekele Favorite for 2008 World Cross Country Championships

On the eve of the 2008 World Cross Country Championships in Edinburgh, Scotland, it looks like Kenenisa Bekele is the one to beat in the 12km men's test. Despite missing a connecting flight in London, which delayed his arrival to Edinburgh until this evening, he's still the odds on favorite given his string of championship titles from 2002-2006. With a near miss in 2007, the Ethiopian should be even more motivated for victory. has a nice preview of Sunday's races (story), and the IAAF has a site chock full of details of the events, with links to press conferences and live updates (IAAF site).
