NAIROBI, Sept. 12 (Xinhua) -- Kenya's Commonwealth and African silver medallist, Isaiah Kiplangat Koech, is raring to catch the bouquet and close his season with IAAF Continental Championships honours in Marrakesh Air Jordan Retro Australia , Morocco.

Koech reigned over 5,000m in Kenya in the previous three seasons before compatriot Caleb Mwangangi Ndiku stole the thunder this year.

The power-pack athlete played the bridesmaid to his compatriot at the National Championships in June before being led to the altar at both the Glasgow Club Games and continental showdown in Morocco by the same opponent inside a week in August but ahead of the gathering of continents, Kiplangat is hoping lightening will not strike for the fourth time.

A personal best in 8km race (22:09) in New Orleans in March before a seasonal 10K best the following month in 28:07 at the same US city opened his season with much promise.

Koech was slowly moving into form clocking a seasonal best (13:07.55) in Oregon on May 31.

A week later he lined up for at the National Championships cum Commonwealth games trials in Nairobi trials seeking ticket to Glasgow 2014.

But as is typical of Kenyan trials, Koech could only manage fourth place at gruesome championships in 13:30.81. AK however came to his rescue by handing him a wild card for both events.

In the 5,000m final at Hampden Park Air Jordan Australia , Koech did most of the work pushing the pace for almost the entire race but he was edged out in a sprint finish by compatriot Mwangangi having to settle for silver in 13:14.06.

"The race was fine and I am happy about the medal. It was a good race although it was raining and we got one and two for Kenya. The pace was so slow so I decided to push it a bit because I wanted to go slightly faster."

A few days later, the order was repeated at the African Athletics Championships in Marrakesh with Koech again following Mwangangi across the line in 13:35.73 to make the African team for the Intercontinental Cup also set for the Moroccan City.

Koech and Mwangangi are the only athletes from Africa to feature at the same event from the same nation and another 1-2 cannot be ruled out although this time, the former is hoping to reverse the finishing order in a season where the 12 and a half-lap race has evolved to be an internal competition.

Region stable, prosperous 7 years after Urumqi riots

The Belt and Road initiative has made Northwest China's Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region more open and prosperous, as the region strives to stamp out the influence of extremism and terrorism Men's Air Jordan Son Of Mars Black Shoes Australia , analysts said.

Tuesday marks the seventh anniversary of the July 5 riots in Urumqi, Xinjiang's capital, that killed 197 people.

"After years of an intense crackdown on the three evil forces - terrorism, extremism and separatism - Xinjiang has become more stable which has greatly contributed to economic development," Xu Jianying Women's Air Jordan Spizike Orange Shoes Australia , a research fellow at the Research Center for Chinese Borderland History and Geography of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, told the Global Times on Monday.

Xinjiang has not only seen more economic, business and personnel exchanges with inland provinces but has also opened up to the outside world under the Belt and Road initiative, said Xu.

In March 2015, Xinjiang was named as the "core zone" of the Silk Road Economic Belt in the framework jointly published by the National Development and Reform Commission Men's Air Jordan XXXI Black Cat Shoes Black White Australia , Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Ministry of Commerce.

The framework states that Xinjiang could serve as a bridgehead in China's westward opening-up, deepen ties with countries in Central Asia and transform itself into a transportation hub, and a center of trade and logistics, culture and technology.

Xinjiang will also host the 5th China-Eurasia Expo from September 20 to 25, where a record number of attendees Men's Air Jordan 32 XXXII Retro Low Flyknit Shoes Black Blue Australia , including political leaders from Asia and Europe and heads of international organizations, are expected.

"The initiative boosts cross-border infrastructure development, including roads and pipelines in the region, laying the foundation for economic as well as personnel exchanges,".
