JUST IN: Again! Kenyan, Ethiopian emerge winners at Lagos City Marathon
Kenya’s Emmanuel Naibei has emerged as the new champion of the World Athletics Silver Label race at the Access Bank Lagos City Marathon.
He returned a time of 2hrs 14 mins 10 sec (unofficial) to claim the top prize which is $30,000 on Saturday.
This is the fourth time a Kenyan is emerging as the winner of the men’s 42km Access Bank Lagos City Marathon since it started six years ago.
Also in the women’s category, Meseret Dinke reclaimed her title after emerging first on Saturday.
We recalled that she won the 2019 edition of the Access Bank Lagos City marathon but was dethroned last year by Kenyan Sharon Cherop who set a new course record of 2.31.40.
This is the fourth time an Ethiopian will be winning the female race.
