IAAF.org: Goffi and Omwanza win in Turin

Bad weather prevents fast times in the marathon


Danilo Goffi from Italy secured his berth in the Italian team for this summer’s World Championships in Helsinki with a win in 2:11:12 in the 15th edition of the Turin Marathon held in cold and rainy weather conditions which dashed any hopes of a sub-2:10 time.

Goffi, 1998 European silver medallist and a 2:08:33 runner (PB set in Rotterdam in 1998), beat his Carabinieri Bologna clubmate Francesco Bennici who finished runner-up in 2:11:15 in his first serious attempt over the marathon distance. David Makori, a Kenyan coached by Renato Canova, completed the podium in 2:11:39.

Beatrice Omwanza, who attempted to attack to her 2:27:19 PB set last year in Berlin, took the honours in the women’s race in 2:30:40, beating the Russian Alevtina Biktimirova (2:31:39) and the Kenyan Rita Jeptoo (2:31:50).
