By James Bakama WINNING a World Cross-country might sound too big a feat for Uganda, but to coach Johnson Kasajja, that is what Boniface Kiprop deserved in Dublin last weekend. Kasajja strongly believes that Kiprop, winner of Uganda’s first individual bronze, would have emerged champion but was denied a chance to effect his race plan. The tactic, which Kasajja says had been meticulously laid out for a month, blew up when Kiprop’s pacesetter Patrick Cheboto failed to travel to Dublin. Cheboto and Moses Kipsiro did not go to Ireland because of lack of funds. “This demoralised the team, ruling out the teamwork element,” said Kasajja, arguing that the team performance could even have been better. According to the coach, Kiprop, who was much faster than Martin Toroitich, Paul Wakou and Francis Musani, was thereafter at the mercy of the Kenyans. ends
