NEW YORK (Sporting Alert) — Geoffrey Mutai of Kenya and Ethiopia’s Firehiwot Dado won the men and women crown at Sunday’s New York City Marathon.

Mutai, who is slowly establishing himself as the man to beat at next year’s London Olympic Games, finished the race in a course record time of 2 hours, 5 minutes, 6 seconds. The performance improved the previous mark of 2:07:43, set by Tesfaye Jifar of Ethiopia ten-years ago.

Also breaking the old course record were Kenyan Emmanuel Mutai, who is of no relation to Geoffrey, and is the London Marathon champion and Ethiopian Tsegaye Kebede. Emmanuel Mutai ran 2:06:28 for second and Kebede was third in 2:07:14.

Defending champion Gebre Gebremariam of Ethiopia was fourth in 2:08:00.

Dado clocked 2:23:15 to take the women’s title over Buzunesh Deba of USA, who ran 2:23:19, while Mary Keitany of Kenya, who was expected to win the event, faded to third in 2:23:38.
