Tsehay Gemechu of Ethiopia picked up the victory in the women’s contest after stopping the clock at 1:06:44 to back up her second-place performance in Istanbul when she ran 1:05:52. She covered the opening 5k in 15:54 and went past the 10k mark at 31:37.

Gemechu got the better of marathon world record holder Brigid Kosgei of Kenyan who was second in 1:06:44, while Ethiopia’s Gotytom Gebreslase Teklezgi recorded 1:07:11 for the last podium spot.

The men’s contest went to Kenneth Kiprop Renju of Kenya in 1:00:13, as he captured his second half marathon title this season, following his victory in Praha, last month.

Renju, who ran a personal best of 58:35 for third in Ras Al Khaimah in February, ran 59:28 for the win in Praha.

“Today I am feeling good because I thank God. He has given me energy all the way,” said Renju after his win.

The Kenyan said his race was affected by the heat in the Portuguese capital on Sunday.
