NAIROBI Adidas Superstar 2 Zwart Wit G50965 Goedkoop , July 6 (Xinhua) -- Kenya athletics head coach Julius Kirwa is concerned about possible burn out of his star athletes and has requested them to shelve their Diamond League engagements to focus on Beijing World Championships.

Kirwa said on Monday that majority of Kenyans are not in top form and need to focus on more training to gain their fitness ahead of the World Championships, instead of chasing the Diamond money in the 14-leg circuit.

"There are three or four legs to go before the World Championships and some of these athletes are not close to winning the Diamond Race and should shelve it and go train. The world championships is much greater than the money they are chasing at the Diamond League," Kirwa said in Nairobi.

On Saturday, Olympic champion Eunice Sum collected the maximum four league points after finishing first in the women's 800m race at Stade de France.

Sum, who is exhibiting top form, won her third race in as many attempts when she posted a new personal best time of 1:56.99 to shrug off chasing Cuban Mary Almanza. Sum's time was a world lead Adidas Superstar W Leather Wit Power Rood Ba7585 Goedkoop , the fastest time since 2013.

"Sum has done enough. She is leading the Diamond League and she can afford to rest and skip the race in Monaco and Stockholm," said Kirwa.

Sum had also indicated she will cut down her races to focus on the Beijing Worlds, and having opened a six point lead, she can afford the comfort of straying away to train for and let her chasers catch up in the two other meetings.

Another strong Kenyan show was in the 1,500m race where former world silver medallist Silas Kiplagat was in top form clocking 3:30.12 to beat Djiboutis's Ayanleh Souleiman and Kenyan Ronald Kwemoi.

As expected, Kenyans dominated the 3 Dames Adidas Superstar Wit Power Rood BB0532 Goedkoop ,000m steeplechase, but it was Jairus Kipchoge Birech who took top honours beating American Evan Jager to second while Conseslus Kipruto was third.

Olympic and world champion Ezekiel Kemboi finished a distant 11th.

Many women prefer traveling with their best friends rather than their male partners or family members, with the upcoming FIFA World Cup considered a golden opportunity for men-free trips.

Given the choice of lying on the couch watching soccer matches on TV with her husband or traveling with her gal pals, it's a no-brainer for Zhao Xueqing. Zhao, 28, holidayed with her husband before they married Adidas Superstar W Dames Wit Rood Goedkoop , but her girlfriends are her preferred travel mates now. Usually in a small group of three to five women, Zhao and her girlfriends have traveled to many cities in China, particularly famous ancient villages in the country's southeast.

"Taking men on a trip is very inconvenient; they are no fun," laughed Zhao, who is one of the many modern women driving the trend of girls-only holidays. According to a March poll by tourism website qunar, 62 percent of women choose friends as their travel partners and only 45 percent travel with their male significant other.

During the last FIFA World Cup in 2010 Adidas Heren Superstar Skate Zwart Goedkoop , many women chose to shun their couch-potato men to go on trips with their girlfriends. Although there is less than a week before this year's World Cup kicks off in Brazil, there is still time for women to plan "bestie trips" to escape their sports-mad zombie boyfriends and husbands.

Leaving men behind

Zhao and her friends are planning another partners- and children-free trip next week when World Cup fever takes over. Zhao believes that overall men are too bound by travel itineraries, but women who holiday as a group are more flexible with their arrangements.

"We just stroll around randomly, but men can't bear it. You also have to keep your husband's feelings in mind all the time. You can't make jokes, check out handsome guys or play drinking games, such as Truth or Dare Adidas Heren Superstar Skate Groen Goedkoop ," laughed Zhao. "Even now, my husband doesn't know that I can drink a lot."

For Zhao, the thought of staying in a hotel room with her husband is boring. Gossiping with female friends and drinking late into the night, however, is her idea of a fun holiday.

Although most of Zhao's girlfriends are married, she feels lucky that they can leave their men at home and book a holiday when they feel bored or stressed.

Zhao also finds that the best way to resolve a quarrel between girlfriends is by taking a holiday together. "Once two of us weren't talking to each other because of a misunderstanding Adidas superstar pharrell supershell Heren Goedkoop , so during our trip to Guangzhou [capital of South China's Guangdong Province], we deliberately left the pair at the hotel so they could talk about their differences," she said.

Cindy Rao, a 25-year-old civil servant, prefers traveling with girlfriends more than with family members or men because she thinks "men are lazy and can't walk far." Girls, on the other hand Adidas Heren Superstar Pharrell Supershell Wit Goedkoop , are already well-trained from their shopping routine at long-distance walking and stopping frequently for food or photos.

"I find my family members and boyfriends lazy and conservative. They don't like intensive travel itineraries or adventurous activities, such as sky diving," she said. "Girlfriends know each other well. Men can barely understand where we want to go, what we want to do, or the fact that we take countless of photos," said Rao Heren Adidas Superstar Pharrell Supershell Zwart Geel Goedkoop , who has traveled to New Zealand, Japan and Singapore with her girlfriends.

Testing friendships

But there are some inevitable perils of all-women holidays. There are individual and family concerns ove.
