Commonwealth Games: Ramadhani and McCann win Marathons

2006-03-19

Samson Ramadhani Nyonyi of Tanzania won the Commonwealth Games men's marathon in a time of 2:11:29 hours in Melbourne on Sunday.

The Tanzanian took advantage of a mid-race mishap to take gold from Kenyan Fred Mogaka Tumbo. Bronze went to England's Daniel Robinson who was three minutes behind Ramadhani Nyonyi. "I know that the Kenyans are very strong, but I didn’t use strength, I used my brain," said a jubilant Ramadhani Nyonyi post race. "I’m very happy, I’mfeeling wonderful."

Isegwe Njunguda of Tanzania had led for most of the race but had to withdraw after suffering severe cramp in his legs. The Tanzanian's withdrawal left Kenyan Fred Mogaka Tumbo over 500 metres in front of his nearest competitor at the race's halfway stage. Nyonyi gradually reeled in the Kenyan over the latter half of the race to beat him by 32 seconds.
