Muindi wins fifth Honolulu title

2005-12-12

Jimmy Muindi celebrated his third successive victory in the Honolulu Marathon on Sunday winning by a huge margin of over three minutes. The 32-year-old Kenyan also clinching a fifth title, crossed the finishing line in two hours 12minutes 00seconds, well clear of Mbarak Hussein and Eric Nzioki. Hussein himself a former Kenyan now running for the United States clocked 2:15:06 with Nzioki also from the African country, finishing in 2:16:24. Muindi said: "It was very hard, I was going for the record (2:11:12), but it wasn't possible because I was running alone."

Olesya Nurgalieva on her Honolulu debut, succeeded fellow Russian Lyubov Morgunova - she finished fifth in 2:40:47 - as champion winning the event easily in 2:30:24. Eri Hayawaka of Japan prevented a Russian clean sweep of the top three placings, finishing runner-up in 2:32:59 ahead of Alevtina Ivanova and Elena Nurgalieva whose times were 2:38:17 and 2:38:50.
