Eliud Kipchoge wins Rotterdam marathon

14 April 2014, 11:24

Rotterdam - Pre-race favorite Eliud Kipchoge won the Rotterdam Marathon on Sunday, but failed in his bid to break the course record on a windy day in the port city.

Kipchoge ran the final seven kilometers on his own through the streets of Rotterdam to finish in exactly 2 hours, five minutes.

Fellow Kenyan Bernard Koech was second in 2:06.07.

Organizers had hoped to break the course record of 2:04.27 set in 2009 by the Kenyans Duncan Kibet and James Kwambai, but pacemakers dropped out regularly as wind hindered the runners.

"I'm happy to win the race," Kipchoge said. "Next time, I will come for the course record."
