Mark Korir wins Paris Marathon

Mark Korir won the 39th edition of the Schneider Electric Paris Marathon, crossing the line in a personal best of 2:05:49 on Sunday.

He overhauled his Kenyan compatriot Mike Kigen with just over five kilometres to go, after the latter had tried to run away from the rest of the elite field around 32 kilometres into the race.

Ethiopia's Meseret Mengistu made a massive breakthrough to win the women's race in 2:23:24, taking almost six minutes off her best.

Thank you for all the emotions you gave us and for showing the courage to never crack under pressure !
