On Saturday, 12th March 2016, the Turkish Cross-country athlete, Enis korkmaz, accompanied by Ismail Güzeloğl, competed at the World University Championship in Cassino, Italy.
After a race of 10,7km performed in 34’29’’, Enis Korkmaz ranked 13 out of 75 athletes, all elder than him. His brilliant performance is outstanding, only 43 seconds are separating him for the winner, considering that it was the first time he raced such a long distance in a championship. Congratulations to him and his trainer !
