Tokyo Marathon Tsunami: Extraordinary result from Team Kenya

TOKYO Japan -- Kenya's Wilson Kipsang ran the fastest-ever marathon on Japanese soil on Sunday to win the 2017 Tokyo Marathon. The 34-year-old stormed to the front of the pack in pursuit of the world record, and while he was unable to better that benchmark, his time of two hours, three minutes and 58 seconds was enough to see him comfortably beat compatriots Gideon Kipketer and former champion Dickson Chumba. In the women’s race there was another Kenyan victor, with Sarah Chepchirchir coming home in an impressive time of 2:19:47. She was too strong for the Ethiopian pair of Birhane Dibaba and Amane Gobena, who took second and third, respectively.
