Judith Korir Jeptum of Kenya became the first woman to run a sub-2:20 marathon in French road racing when she won the women’s event in Paris with a personal best of 2:19:48.

“The conditions were tough but I’m happy with what I did today,” Jeptum, who surged ahead of her rivals before the 30km mark, said after the win.

Prior to Jeptum’s triumphant performance this weekend, the course record was 2:20:55, which was set by another Kenyan and former World Youth 3000m champion Purity Rionoripo in 2017.

The 27-year-old broke the tape ahead of a pair of Ethiopian runners, with Fantu Jimma running a personal best time of 2:22:52 for second place and Besu Sado finishing third in 2:23:16.

Another pair of Ethiopians, Adanech Anbesa, who ran a lifetime best of 2:24:07, and Yenenesh Dinkesa, also with a PB of 2:24:09, rounded out the top five finishers on Sunday.

Meanwhile, producing a burst of speed in the final meters of the event, Deso Gelmisa of Ethiopia went on to take the men’s race and piloted a 1-2 finish for his nation, while four Ethiopians finished in the top five.

Gelmisa covered the 42.195 kilometers race in a winning time of 2:05:07, his second fastest-ever over the distance behind his PB of 2:04:53 in 2020.

His performance this weekend saw him move to No. 5 in the world this season, but he did miss out on breaking the course record of 2:04:21, which was set by Elisha Rotich in 2021.

Gelmisa’s fellow Ethiopian Seifu Tura, winner of the Bank of America Chicago Marathon last October, finished three seconds behind his compatriot in 2:05:10 with Frenchman Morhad Amdouni coming in at a national record of 2:05:22 to complete the medal positions.

Amdouni improved the previous French marathon mark which was set by Benoit Zwierzchiewski in 2003, by more than a minute.
