Sang defends, Kirop surprises at Portugal Half Marathon

A fantastic battle between two Kenyans, defending champion Silas Sang and the 2009 World Marathon silver medallist Emmanuel Mutai, produced a course record in Lisbon. Helena Kirop, a late entry, took the women’s race ahead of a pair of Portuguese runners at the Vodafone Portugal Half Marathon.

About 15,000 people crossed the Tagus river bridge (Vasco da Gama Bridge) in a mass race, which provided a strong winner, Silas Sang, who retained his Lisbon title.
