Chelimo, Kirui sparkle at worlds
    2017-August-8  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

KENYA-BORN Bahraini Rose Chelimo edged veteran Edna Kiplagat to win the women’s marathon at the IAAF world championships in London on Sunday.

Kiplagat hit the 40-kilometer mark a second ahead, but Chelimo kicked in the last 2km to win Bahrain’s first medal in the event in 2 hours, 27 minutes, 11 seconds.

Kenyan Kiplagat, a two-time previous champion in 2011 and 2013, claimed silver seven seconds adrift, with American Amy Cragg taking bronze.

Earlier, Geoffrey Kipkorir Kirui prevailed in a compelling east African duel with Ethiopian Tamirat Tola on the streets of London to win the men’s marathon.

Kirui, victor at the Boston Marathon in April, finally broke Tola, the fastest man in the field, with five miles (8.05 km) of the 26.2-mile course left after they had gone head-to-head over the second half of the race.

Kirui forged on so powerfully that by the end of the race as he came towards the line at Tower Bridge, he even had time to tap the hands of some of the hundreds of fans lining the finish.

Kenya’s fifth men’s world champion at the distance clocked 2:08.27, finishing 1.22 ahead of Tola (2:09:49).
