IAAF.org: Goffi and Omwanza win in Turin

Bad weather prevents fast times in the marathon

2005-04-21

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).
