KUNDASANG (Sabah), Oct 24 (Bernama) — Spain’s Tofol Castaner took home the men’s title of the 2010 Skyrunners World Series after he amassed 347 points overall when the final leg of the series, the 24th Mount Kinabalu International Climbathon, concluded here today. Despite finishing third in the race up and down Mount Kinabalu, Castaner’s 347 points was enough to bring home the trophy.
Italy’s Marco De Gasperi won the race in a time of two hours 33 minutes and 56 seconds, setting a new Climbathon Men’s Open record after beating the old record he himself had set in 2003 (2’36.59s).
Castaner clocked 2’58.09s, while Nepal’s Sudip Kulung, who made his debut this year, finished second in 2’46.14s.
Spain’s Jessed Hernandez finished second overall in the series with 324 points, ahead of fellow countryman Sebastian Sanchez Saez with 303 points.
Meanwhile, Malaysia’s Safrey Sumping finished fifth clocking 3’02.47s, but hoped he had done better as last year he had clocked 3’00.22s to finish the race in ninth place.
