(0 votes)

from IAAF  - Singapore - Luke Kibet hobbled away from the finish of the Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon this morning. But the former World champion had staved off a troublesome achilles’ tendon long enough to shatter his own course record, and win in 2:11:25, an achievement made even more extraordinary by the 31C heat and 77% humidity.

(0 votes)

from IAAF - Tsegaye Kebede, the defending Fukuoka Marathon champion, won the 63rd edition of the race in 2:05:18. It was a personal best for the Ethiopian by two seconds as well as a Japanese all-comers record.

The Fukuoka Marathon is an IAAF Silver Label Road Race.

Kebede became the first runner to defend his Fukuoka title since Gezehagne Abera in 2002. He improved on his personal best of 2:05:20, recorded in the 2009 London Marathon. However, he did not move up on the all-time list. Kebede also improved the course as well as Japanese all-comers record of 2:06:10, which he recorded with his victory here last year.

Kibet Ready to turn up the heat – Singapore Marathon preview

(0 votes)

from IAAF - Singapore - Luke Kibet rescued a relatively dismal 2008 by winning the Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon in a course record 2:13:01 a year ago. This year hasn’t been much better for him so far, and he recognises that it’s going to be a lot harder to repeat his rescue act against an improved field in Sunday’s race around the city-state. But the 2007 World champion has one major advantage over his rivals - he runs well in heat and humidity.
