2010 New York Marathon Results : Male & Female Winner

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.
