Australians sweep Taipei 101 Run Up
Taipei, May 7 (CNA) Australians dominated this year's Taipei 101 Run Up on Sunday, clinching the top title for both the men's and women's events.
Mark Bourne finished the 91-floor, 2,046-step climb in 11 minutes and 24.90 seconds to win the men's title, while compatriot Suzy Welsham clocked 13:36.12 to clinch the women's title.
Bourne and Welsham each won a trophy and a cash prize of NT$51,000 (US$1,691), but neither of them broke the records set in 2005, when Paul Crake of Australia clocked 10:29 and Austria's Andrea Mayr finished in 12:38 in the inaugural event in Taiwan's tallest building.
Second place in the men's event went to Leon Keely, also an Australian, who finished in 12:33.00, while Taiwan's Kuo Chun-ku finished third in 12:52.75, Chou Ching took fourth in 12:54.98 and Chiang Yen-ching came fifth in 12:58.62.
Australia's Alice McNamara (13:36.12), Taiwan's Shih Ching-hui (16:11.16), China's Fan Fengjuan (16:49.27) and Australia's Cindy Reid (17:53.05) finished in the second to fifth places in the women's event.
The run up race, now in its 13th year, attracted 4,500 participants from 36 countries vying for NT$800,000 in total prize money. It became part of the Tower Running World Association's calendar of events this year, according to the organizers.
As an added incentive, this year, NT$200,000 was being offered to any runner who set a new record. Meanwhile, the prize money for anyone who finished the fastest among men and women in the the Asia-Pacific region was raised to NT$51,000 from NT$38,000, the organizers said.
