2010 New York Marathon has just ended and the winner is Gebre Gebremariam of Ethiopia. The Ehiopian won this years New York City men’s marathon in an unofficial time of 2 : 8 : 14.
I followed the race on Satellite TV. I wasn’t too disappointed to see Haile Gebrselassie pull out at the 16th mile. I heard before the race he was paid a reported $400,000 just to turn up?
Gebremariam come into the final miles in Central Park neck-and-neck with Emmanuel Mutai of Kenya but he put a strong kick to race away and win.
The womens event has been won by Edna Kiplagat of Kenya. Second place was American Shalane Flanagan.
