Iaaf.org: Shami, Kimuria take the wins at the 20th Venice Marathon

Mubarak Hassan Shami knocked three minutes from his previous

lifetime best to win the twentieth edition of the Venice Marathon in

2:09:22.

For the Qatari, the former Kenyan Richard Yatich, it was his second

marathon win of the year after his 2:12:20 debut over the distance in

Vienna last May. The challenging Venice course also apparently inspired

the young Kenyan Paul Lokira, who finished second in 2:10:18, just

ahead of Italy's Francesco Ingargiola, who clocked 2:10:25.

Running in the fourth marathon of her career, 27-year-old Emily Kimuria

took top honours in the women's race in 2:28:42, just shy of her

2:28:18 personal best from the 2003 Berlin Marathon. Ethiopian Leila

Aman (PB 2:27:54, Berlin 2004) finished runner-up in 2:31:10 ahead of

pre-race favourite Helena Javornik from Slovenia, who took third place

in 2:32:13, but was rewarded with the World Military Games title.
