NEW YORK (USA): New York City half marathon winner Caroline Rotich ran to a new course record of 1:08.52 last weekend but admitted her heart felt heavy after the recent disasters in Japan. Rotich has spent her teenage years in Sendai after earning a scholarship to Sendai Ikuei Gakuen, the same high school that Olympic champion Sammy Wanjiru attended, when she was 14 years old. After the race Rotich was quoted “I remember how things were when I was there and to see how they are now breaks my heart.”
