Belainish Gebre Photo : Picture

Belainish Gebre won the 2010 Honolulu marathon. But her victory had been challenged by second place finisher claiming that Gebre had received fluids from Ezkayas Tsegaya, Gebre’s boyfriend.

The race stewards checked the photos and concluded she had nothing wrong since her boyfriend was not her coach and she had only received the official water and nothing else special.

They gave her the win plus the $40,000 price money.

2010 London Marathon Race Results

The 2010 London Marathon has just finished. The Men’s winner was Ethiopia’s Tsegaye Kebede while the ladies event was won by Liliya Shobukova.

Kebede had untroubled victory, the Kenyans today didnt turn up! Samwel Wanjiru was left behind at mile 18, followed by Kibet at mile 20. Kirui tried to Keep up with Kebede and I could see he was giving it 110% while Kebede looked like he could notch a gear anytime. At mile 22 Kebede just went for it, he crossed the finish line in 2:05:12! Missing the course record by 2 seconds.

As for the Ladies, my athlete for the race has to be the second place finisher, another Russian (sorry, cant remember her name) At certain point she seemed to be far behind, but she just kept going and going! She was also thrilled with her performance because she was all smiles at the finish.

I watched the race Live via Satellite TV and I have to say It was another beautiful London Marathon! Loved it!
