The Ethiopians Guye Adola and Gotytom Gebreslase won the Berlin marathon in the men and women, because the legendary compatriot Kenenisa Bekele could not endanger the world record despite a fast first half.
Adola crossed the line in Germany in 2 hours 5 minutes 45 seconds and defeated the threats from Bethwel Yegon from Kenya and Bekele.
The leading group was below the world record time in the first half of the race, a group of four reached the half marathon distance in 1:00:48.
Tesfaye Lencho from Ethiopia and the Kenyans Abraham Kipyatich and Philemon Kacheran were among the leading four with Adola, but they all fell by the wayside.
At this point, Bekele was 12 seconds behind and Yegon more than a minute behind .
Eliud Kipchoge’s world record of 2:01:39 seemed less endangered 10 kilometers from the finish, as all the athletes fell short of the Kenyan Olympic champion’s previous best time
Bekele, three-time Olympic champion on the track, could not repeat his time two years ago when he threatened Kipchoge’s world record.
Bekele missed it by two seconds in 2019, but this time had more than five minutes Backlog and finished third in 2:06:47, behind Yegon in 2:06:14.
In the women’s category, Gebreslase celebrated her debut over the distance with a win in 2:20:09 and took the lead in the final stages from their compatriot Hiwot Gebrekidan.
Both were clear in front of the rest of the field and looked good at times to endanger the course record of 2:18:11, but braked in the second half.

Denver hosted the 1976 Winter Olympics before Sion in Switzerland, Tempere in Awarded Finland and Vancouver, Canada at the 1970 International Olympic Committee meeting. But in a November 1972 referendum in Colorado, voters refused to fund the event. It is the only time that a city has won the Olympics but has withdrawn. The IOC then offered the games to Whistler in Canada, but they also declined due to a change of government after the elections. Salt Lake City offered to host the Games, but the IOC, still suffering from Denver’s rejection, declined and chose Innsbruck, the host city of 1964, as its replacement.
