IAAF.org: Rop and Chepchumba take impressive Lisbon Half Marathon victories

2004-03-28

Kenyans Rodgers Rop (59:49) and Joyce Chepchumba (68:11) won the mens and womens races respectively at this morning’s Lisbon Half Marathon. The men’s race was particularly fast, but, even so, Paul Tergat’s event record (59:06) was not beaten.

No one has ever won the Lisbon Half Marathon twice, however last year’s winner Martin Lel tried hard to reach that goal today. He was leading the race until the final metres but Rogers Rop didn’t intend to give him that honour, and passed him just before the finish line, and only two seconds separated them 59:49 to 59:51.
