IAAF.org: Hiroyama over Shibui in Nagoya Marathon

2006-03-13

Passing Yoko Shibui with one kilometre to go, Harumi Hiroyama, ran to a 2:23:26 victory at the Nagoya International Women’s Marathon.

“It was a hard race from about the half way, but I wasn’t about to give up,” said Hiroyama, who overcame a 57 second deficit at 30 Km to win her first marathon at age 37. “After 35 kilometres I was able to see Shibui ahead of me, but I could not close the gap fast enough.”

Shibui, a former World record holder in the Marathon, took the lead immediately within the Mizuho stadium, reaching the first kilometre in 3:14.
