IAAF.org: Loroupe clocks 2:29 in Leipzig

2004-04-27

Kenyans Tegla Loroupe and Christopher Cheboiboch won the Leipzig Marathon on Sunday 25 April. While Loroupe clocked 2:29:40 to take the womens title, Cheboiboch, who belongs to the same training group, ran 2:10:16 for the mens division win. So it was a double celebration for Volker Wagner, their Detmold based German manager.

It was the first time since reunification that the Leipzig Marathon has had such an elite field. As a bidding city for the Olympics 2012 extra funds have been made available, and the newly measured course will be used for the Olympic marathons should Leipzig be successful with its bid.
