Regassa and Jelagat triumph in Rotterdam

At this point, Ethiopia’s Abebech Afework was running alone in third place, around 80 metres ahead of team-mate Mekuria Aberume.

Kibet remained a few seconds behind Jelagat until 30km (1:42:07), after which the Kenyan was able to maintain her pace until the finish, while Kibet struggled and began to fade. She was caught by Afework at roughly 32km but held on for third place.

Jelagat, meanwhile, went on to finish strongly in a personal best of 2:23:27, smashing the 2:29:41 PB she set six years ago in Frankfurt. Competing in just her second Marathon to date, Afework finished second in 2:23:59, significantly improving upon the 2:27:08 she recorded on her debut in Dubai earlier this year.
