IAAF.org: Paul Tergat wins Lisbon Half Marathon in superb 59:10

2005-03-14

The city of Lisbon acts like a talisman for Paul Tergat who took his second victory in the Lisbon Half Marathon, the 15th edition of which was held earlier today. His winning time was 59:10, just short of the 59:06 clocking, unofficially the world’s fastest ever time, which he set when winning this race in 2000.

In its history the Lisbon race has produced some of the world’s finest ever road races at the Half Marathon distance but is contested on a slightly downhill course (40m; between 2000-2003 it was 69m) and therefore it is not recognised for record purposes.

However, Tergat is in any case the holder of the official World record for the distance thanks to his 59:17 clocking in Milan, Italy in 1998. He also won the real,- BERLIN-MARATHON in 2003 in a world record time of 2:04:55.
