  • [01] Kenyan athletes dominate 27th Classic Marathon

    The 27th Classic Marathon of Athens ended with another victory for Kenya in the men's race on Sunday, when Josephat Kipkurui crossed the finish line in 2:13:44 to win his country the gold for the 6th consecutive year and for the 9th time overall. The Kenyan team dominated all three top slots in the men's race and most of the top eight.

    In the women's race, Akemi Ozaki of Japan came first with a time of 2:39:56 and earned her country a second consecutive gold in the women's Athens marathon, and a 5th first place in the women's race overall.

    According to organisers, more than 3,600 athletes set off at the starting line on Sunday, in spite of the poor, wet conditions during the first half of the race that kept times relatively low.

    The first Greek athlete to cross the finish line was Dimitrios Theodorakakos with a time of 2:26:27 and the first Greek woman athlete to finish was Georgia Ampatzidou with a time of 2:44:23, who came fifth in the women's race overall.
