IAAF.org: Genovese comes from behind for surprise win in Tokyo Women
2004-11-23Bruna Genovese of Italy came from behind to win the Tokyo Womens Marathon Sunday (21 Nov). Genovese, who was 51 seconds behind at 35Km, passed the leader Ethiopian Elfenesh Alemu at 40.7Km to win with 2:26:34.
Perhaps it is becoming the ‘Italian way’ to win major marathons, for Stefano Baldini in this summer’s Athens Olympics and Gelindo Bordin in the 1988 Olympic Games in Seoul, came from behind for famous wins too.
