  • Dominant Ndungu regains Lake Biwa crown

    Kenya's Samuel Ndungu surged away from the opposition in the last 10 kilometres to claim his second Lake Biwa Marathon title ahead of Italy's Daniele Meucci - Samuel Ndungu from Kenya claimed his second title on a cold and rainy morning at the 70th staging of the Lake Biwa Mainichi Marathon, an IAAF Gold Label Road Race, on Sunday (1).

    It was in this race three years ago where the Kenyan made his marathon debut with victory in a still-standing PB of 2:07:04 but Ndungu's aspirations of lowering his best ever time dissipated when the pacemakers went out much slower than expected.

    “I won because I trained hard,” said Ndungu, speaking in fluent Japanese after the race. “My goal for this race was to run 2:06, but because of steady cold rain, it was little difficult to run 2:06."
