After being denied a world record time last year because of an error in the course measurement, Yehualaw returned this year to dominate her rivals again –clocking 1:04:22 to secure back-to-back victories and fell just short of Letesenbet Gidey’s world record.

Yehualaw started well and was on world record pace, but she wasn’t able to keep the tempo up and fell short of the targeted 1:02:52 world mark.

Her Ethiopian teammate Tsehay Gemechu finished second in a time of 1:05:01 with Beatrice Chepkemoi Mutai of Kenya getting third place at 1:07:37.

The men’s contest saw Jemal Yimer also dominating his challengers after clocking 59:03 –seven seconds inside the UK all-comers record set in Cardiff by Geoffrey Kamworor in 2016.

Kenya’s Alfred Ngeno was second at 1:01:00 with another Kenyan Shadrack Kimining taking third place after crossing the finish line at 1:01:08.
