Sea Warrior runner finishes in 78th place at Boston Marathon
by Kalamalama staff

HPU’s men’s cross country runner Casper Dahl was the first Hawai‘i runner to cross the finish line at the 110th Boston Marathon held on April 17. The 25-year-old Dahl, a senior from Lyngby, Denmark, finished the 26.2 mile course in 2 hours, 35 minutes, and 25 seconds, placing him 78th out of 20,000 entrants. The 2003 men’s winner Robert Cheruiyot set a new course record, winning this year in a time of 2 hours, 7 minutes, and 14 seconds.

Dahl was a consistent runner for HPU this season, finishing in the top three positions in four meets, and also posting a 28th-place finish at the Western Regional Championships held in Chino, Calif. last November. His efforts were vital in HPU’s claiming the PacWest cross country championship over BYU-Hawai‘i.

Since the last World Cup, many of the Brazilian players have performed very well in European soccer leagues. Barcelona’s Ronaldinho Gaucho, voted by FIFA (Federation Internationale de Football Association) the best player in the world for 2005, will, together with Kaká, Adriano, and Robinho, just to mention a few, try to bring the trophy back to Brazil. But there are many teams challenging the Brazilians. [More]
