Thrilling Finishes in Men's Points Race

On a cloudy Sunday morning, thousands of runners lined up in Central Park for the Portugal Day 5-Mile Run--the fourth race for men in NYRR's hotly contested team-points competition. Twenty-eight-year-old Fikadu Lemma of the West Side Runners broke the tape near Tavern on the Green in 24 minutes. Although he had to sprint hard to win the race, the Ethiopian transplant caught his breath quickly. “I felt great,” Lemma said with a big smile. “I ran a 5K yesterday, and still had no problems here.”
