Way to jumps: Cheptegei watches 15km best in Niemgen, Melese records record of Shanghai Marathon course | news


Joshua Cheptegei of Uganda won NN ZevenHeuvenloop at 41:05 to win eight seconds in the world.

World silver, 10,000 meters, ran earlier than planned, because pacemakers are struggling to maintain the required pace. He passed the first five kilometers at 14:07, but he increased his pace and covered the next five-kilometer section at 13:42 and reached 10 kilometers at 27:49.

The doubly Commonwealth champion, however, had yet another gear for movement, but he raised his pace at the last third of the race to keep pace with world success. After finishing the last five kilometers at 13:16 and the last three kilometers at 7:46, he finished the finish at 41:05.

"After 10km I was out of schedule for the best world so I decided to accelerate to 12km," said Cheptegei after he won the fourth time. "The last kilometer was heavy, but I really enjoyed it. I am very proud of my achievement and I want to thank the organization and my team."

Abrar Osman of Eritrea finished in second second 42:34, 22 seconds ahead of the world 5000m champion Muktar Edwards.

The Chettegea and another champion of 10,000 million Commonwealth champion Stella Chesang won the women's race in the national record of 47:19. Kevin Evaline Chirchir finished one place more than last year at 47:35, and Susan Krumins of the Netherlands six times in third place.

The Meles and the Toura achieve the Ethiopian double in Shanghai

The Egyptian Iebrgual Melese on Sunday (18th) in the Shanghai International Marathon reduced the record for women's flows in more than a minute, while the Abdivak Tura fellow took the male title after a fight to get in touch, providing the first Ethiopian two in the 19-year history of the IAAF Gold Label events.

Running in cold and drizzli conditions with temperatures ranging from 10 to 12 degrees, Melese built a comfortable lead in the final five kilometers to finish the wine in 2:20:37, hitting the record of 2:21:52 set three a year ago fellow Tiger Tufa.

The 28-year-old led the group of seven and held fast speed at an early stage of the race, passing 10 kilometers at 35:30 and 20 kilometers at 1:06:30. The group was crossed into three women on a 25-kilometer water station, which arrived at 1:23:35, and Muluhabt Tsega of Ethipia left the title after another two kilometers.

In the form of Melese, whose PB from 2:19:36 from Dubai earlier this year made her the fastest players, she continued on. After several failed breaks, she finally took Azmer Abrech to achieve a unique lead after 36 kilometers and never looked around before she broke the strap in style to celebrate her first marathon title in three years.

Eight of the top 10 players in the women's race have achieved the best of their lives. Twenty-year-old Abreha, also from Ethiopia, improved PB for more than three minutes to finish second in 2:21:51. Third place went to Kenya Betti Lempus, which improved PB in almost six minutes to 2:23:41.

At the men's event, two runners who were sub-2: 05 turned the race into the last 100 meter competition, while the Tour crossed the edge Ethiopian Tsega Meconnen ahead of the finish.

The 21-year Tour has played 2:09:20 to claim the title, 4:36 shy in his career from 2:04:44 set in Dubai earlier this year. McConnen, performer 2:04:32, finished with the same tactics, but he had to settle for second place. Dickson Tuvei of Kenya finished third at 2:09:21.

The lead group of more than 10 runners reached five kilometers at 15:25, 10 kilometers at 30:47 and 20 kilometers at 1:01:21. Nine people were still in the discussion when they reached 30 kilometers at 1:32:12, and after another five kilometers the piece was down to seven.

Soon it became clear that the leaders were focused only on winning – not on the challenge of course record 2:07:14 set by Kenyan Paul Loniangat in 2015 – since none of them was willing to risk acceleration before. Seven runners stayed together until they entered the Shanghai stadium, where the target line was located.

McConnell was the first to set the price for the line, followed by Tour and Tuvei. In the past 10 meters, the McConnen has gone on to take the second title of the year after his victory in Milan in April 2:09:04.

"I expected to finish today at 2:07 today, but the weather was very difficult and the competition was tough," Tour said. "I'm very happy to win at the first Shanghai competition."

The first seven finalists were separated in only eight seconds. Former world record holder Dennis Kimetto finished his first marathon for two and a half years, finishing 10th in 2:14:55. His time was almost 12 minutes slower than his 2:02:57 best since 2014, but he would give him little confidence after three successive incomplete marathons.

Girma and Lekapana take the main honors in Boulogne-Billancourt

Taie Girma and Parapente Lekapano won Sunday's (18) victories at the semi-marathon semi-marathon Boulogne-Billancourt, the IAAF bronze label Boulogne-Billancourt.

Accompanied by Precious Mashele of South Africa, who established a stable pace from the pistol, the main eight racers hit five kilometers and 10 kilometers at 14:31 and 29:02, respectively.

Mashele, Olika Adugna, Iismav Aienu, Taie Girma, Joshfat Tanui and champion of the 2008 champion champion Brimin Kipruto were still in discussion for a victory in 15 kilometers, reaching 43:32.

Mashele broke the field, raising the speed after about 17 kilometers, and could only be tracked by Girm and Tanui. Then Girma began his decisive attack with the remaining remaining kilometers, placed a mark of 20 kilometers at 57:55, two seconds ahead of Tanui and six seconds ahead of Mashell.

Girma held his step in the final stage and won at 1:00:52.

"This is my first half-marathon experience and I am very pleased to win today," said Ethiopian, who earlier this year set a 10km PB at 28:06. "It was cold during most of the race."

Tanui came home second at 1:01:00 while Mashele rounded the podium at 1:01:14. Cypriot, now focusing on the path leading, he finished fifth at 1:02:24.

Lekapane's paradise made a solo effort to overcome compatriot Susan Jepto, whose PB of 1:09:02 was 11 seconds faster than Lekapane's personal record.

Lekapana, 27, was well within PB temp and covered the first five kilometers at 15:51, suggesting the possibility of ending 1:06:50.

She was 32:21 at 10:10, 42 seconds ahead of Jepto, and is still looking for a 1:08:29 record set by Rahma Tus last year. Kenya could not maintain such speed and cover the next 10 kilometers at 34:32, but still held a lead of 55 seconds over Jepto for 20 kilometers.

Although it fell to 40 seconds, Lekapana crossed the line last year at 1:10:46 to seal her second victory in the year after the success in Krems from 1:09:23. Karine Paskuier from France finished third in 1:15:26.
