The 29-year-old, who is not nominated for the Olympic Games, clearly undercut the last year’s best time of world record holder and Olympic champion Eliud Kipchoge who ran 2:04:30 in Enschede. In positions two and three, the Kenyans Reuben Kipyego and Barnabas Kiptum also ran world-class times with 2:03:55 and 2:04:17 respectively.
There was also a new world-leading time for women. Ethiopia’s Hiwot Gebremaryam won 2:19:35 ahead of Racheal Mutgaa (Kenya / 2:22:50) and Eunice Chumba (Bahrain / 2: 23:10).
