Another Austrian win after Weidlinger dominated in Melbourne earlier in the day. Eva Maria Gradwohl was the surprise winner in the women’s race in 2:35:41 in the 20th marathon of her career.

Europe prevailed over Africa in the fight for second place with Lena Gavelin from Sweden second in 2:37:11 ahead of Girma Tadesse (2:37:28) from Ethiopia. Ivana Iozzia finished as the first italian in fourth place in 2:37:35. Writes IAAF.

Kenyan Ben Chebet Kipruto took the win at the 26th edition of the Florence Marathon holding off former Olympic steeple winner Reuben Kosgei by one second in 2:11:21 (his first finished marathon). It was the second win of the year for Kipruto who finished first at the Maratona di Sant’Antonio in Padova last April in his 2:09:42 PB. Assefa Reta Girma from Ethiopia finished third in 2:12:42, three seconds ahead of Italian 37-year-old top runner Danilo Goffi who kept his dream alive to make the National team for next summer’s European Championships in Barcelona after 2:12:45.
