NAIROBI adidas superstar pride pack saldi , June 9 (Xinhua) -- Uganda's Stephen Kiprotich will put his title on the line at the World Championships in Beijing in August and his training mate Wilson Kipsang of Kenya is ready to stake claim to it.
Kipsang, 33, wants to improve from his bronze medal at the London Olympics to gold in Beijing and is ready to do everything to see that he wins in August.
"I am very proud to be a part of the preliminary selection for the upcoming World Championships," Kipsang said on Tuesday from Eldoret.
"I have never represented my country at a World Championships before, so I am very excited. The preliminary selection consists out of six athletes and only three of us will go to Beijing adidas superstar pride pack italia ," he added.
Kipsang will be one of the star names that Kenya will bank on for the medal in Beijing. He recently won silver in London Marathon and is the reigning New York Marathon champion.
Now he needs to add the world marathon championship title to his collection in August before he leaves the stage to younger athletes.
"If I make the final selection, I will try to reclaim the men's world marathon title for Kenya in Beijing from Uganda's Stephen Kiprotich," he said. "The Kenyan men and women selection is very strong this year with some of the fastest runners on the marathon distance, including my running mate and world marathon record holder Dennis Kimetto (2:02.57)."
The marathon for men will be on Aug. 22 and for women on Aug. 30. Alongside Kipsang and Kimetto, the Kenya team has Mark Korir puma basket heart patent bianche , Felix Kiprotich, Lucas Rotich and Luka Kanda. All have run under two hours and six minutes.
Kipsang is the only man in history to win at London, Berlin and New York marathons. He is a two-time winner of the London Marathon setting a course record of 2:04:29 in 2014.
One of the strong favorites at the London Olympics, Kipsang opened up a 20-second lead in the first half before finishing third. His 14:11 split between 10km and 15 km was the fastest ever in Olympic competition.
Singapore is a great place to visit, either as a destination or as a stopover on your journey to Australia. Many Australians stop in Singapore on their way to Europe and an increasing number of travelers from America and Europe take a break in this exotic city puma creepers nere oro , before continuing on to Australia. The Lion City is a shoppers and gourmets paradise. Here are some suggestions to help you.
Singapore is a shoppers' mecca but the prices aren't always cheap. Quality shops, once focused on Orchard Road, are now spread throughout the city. Many shopping malls are conveniently situated close to large hotels, particularly at the eastern end of the city. These include Raffles City, Marina Square and Suntec City. There is also an excellent puma creeper velvet burgundy , well priced shopping area near Bugis Street. Most of these shops sell clothing, perfume, kitchenware and personal goods.
For more specific items such as computer software, cameras and mobile phones, try Funan Digital Life Mall in Bridge Rd puma rihanna creeper rosa , a few minutes' walk from City hall MRT underground station. In this multi storey shopping mall, depending on your bargaining skills, you may negotiate up to 40% off.
Most of the main stores have fixed prices, but many have regular sales with up to 50% off. My wife was shopping for baby gear (we were first time grandparents in January!) and she purchased some great clothing at ridiculously cheap prices from a John Little store in the Marina Square Mall.
For a variety of goods, including clothing puma rihanna creeper bianche , where you can bargain, try Chinatown. The prices in the street stalls are very cheap and my wife purchased a silk dressing gown for just $20S. I'm sure if she'd bargained harder, it would have cost her $15! Chinatown is also a great place for massages, particularly foot massages. I had a 45 minute foot massage for just $17S. Ah what bliss after 2 hours of shopping. A similar massage at our hotel would have cost 3 times as much!
If your purchases total over $100s, insist on a GST receipt. This 7% surcharge you can claim at Changi Airport adidas superstar slip on uomo , before you leave the country. If you ask for a voucher instead of cash, you get more than 7% and this can go towards the purchase of duty free.
One final word on shopping. Be aware that prices marked on some items, particularly at food outlets, are not the prices you will pay. To this may be added the GST and possibly a service charge. That cheap snack may not be so cheap after all. So be warned!
Singapore abounds with places to eat and the most popular eating times are between sunset and 10pm, when the city comes "alive"
Here are two suggestions:
For casual eating and sharing your dining experience with the Singaporeans adidas superstar 80s nere , street stalls are the way to go. They are cheap and convenient and a very popular spot is Lau Pa Sat, just a short distance from Raffles Place MRT station.
This can be very confusing to first time visitors, as this underground station is nowhere near the Raffles Hotel or Raffles City shopping complex. Lau Pa Sat is only a $4 taxi fare from most hotels.
We tried the local specialty, satay sticks and shared a plateful for just $8. Washed down with a glass of Tiger beer, it made a filling meal. Further down Cross St is Chinatown adidas supercolor blu elettrico , also a popular area for eating. This area is crammed with food and clothing stalls, as is Bugis St, just outside the Bugis MRT station.
We stumbled on an area called Boat Quay in our first night in Singapore. Here you have a choice of over a dozen restaurants lining the Singapore River. They will be competing for your business, so you can bargain. We negotiated free beer and wine before we were shown to our table. These restaurants provide a wide range of quality food at a fair price. I .
