New world record in Copenhagen

The triple world champion Geoffrey Kamworor from Kenya set Sunday a fantastic world record at the Copenhagen Half Marathon in the Danish capital.

He crossed the finish line in a time of 58 minutes and 1 second. The previous record was 58 minutes and 18 seconds.

the First was his recorded time as 57 minutes and 59 seconds, but it was adjusted later on, so he ended up just over the magical limit of 58 minutes.

- I'm just proud and happy for my performance. I knew I was in good shape, and that I had the opportunity to set the new world record, and it meant a lot for me to put it here in Copenhagen, where I first won the WORLD cup, says Kamworor in a press release.

Already halfway in the race he moved from the front group and ran about ten kilometers in solitary splendour in a unique performance.

When he reached 15 kilometers, it was clear that he was on the way to a possible world record, if he could keep his speed and that he could get to flirt with the magical limit of 58 minutes.

Cheered up by the audience along the long målopløb on Øster Allé managed he to the mantle of the 17 seconds of the world record, but he reached the well, exactly not during the 58 minutes.

The new record is missing even the final approval.

Number two in the race were fellow Benard Kipkorir Ngeno in the time of 59 minutes, and 16 seconds.

At the women, went the victory to the Ethiopian Birhane Dibaba Adugna, who finished in a time of 1 hour, 5 minutes and 57 seconds. It was a little less than half a minute better than Kenya's Evaline Chirchir.

the Course served at the same time as the Danish championship, and here it went the victory of the men to Abdi Ulad. He traversed the small 21,1 kilometers in 1 hour, 5 minutes and 2 seconds.

At the women went to the DM-the title of Maja Alm, who did the route in 1 hour, 11 minutes and 54 seconds.
