A visibly tired Boniface Kiprop finished seventh in his semi-final last night to sneak into the final of the 5000m due on Sunday.
â€œI am tired and yet to recover (from the 10000m). Let me hope that I will recover in these few days and the weather will be friendlier,â€ said Kiprop after the race.
Both races were very fast, and Kipropâ€™s colleagues Wilson Busienei and Moses Kipsiro failed to get into the final despite hitting season best times.
Alex Malinga runs the marathon tomorrow.
Mobile phone virus hits Helsinki
Officials in mobile-mad Finland, home to the worldâ€™s largest cellphone maker Nokia, said there had been outbreaks of the Cabir virus at Helsinkiâ€™s Olympic Stadium.
â€œAt most we are speaking about dozens of infections, but during a short period and in one spot is a huge number,â€ said Jarmo Koski, a security official at telecoms firm TeliaSonera.
Cabir, first reported in June last year, uses Bluetooth short range wireless signals to jump between cellphones.
That means it can spread over distances of up to 10 metres (30 feet), which in a packed stadium could include dozens of phones. The recipient needs to accept a download to be infected and, while telecoms security officials say the risk of catching a mobile virus is small, thousands of phones have already been hit around the world.
Cabir drains the power of the infected phone as it tries to replicate itself on nearby mobiles but the most damaging viruses could disable a phone, requiring a factory reset.
