Laban Korir came through in the last three kilometres to win the men's race at the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon while Mulu Seboka won her third marathon of the year in the women's race
Kenya’s Laban Korir, a training partner of Emmanuel Mutai and Eliud Kipchoge, came through late to win the men’s race at the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon, an IAAF Silver Label Road Race, on Sunday (19).
In cold conditions, Korir chased down the leaders in the final three kilometres and pushed on for victory in 2:08:15.
“I was not expecting to win the race. I was targeting to be in the top three as I said at the press conference,” said Korir, although he was slightly outside his target time.
