Kenyan Dickson Chumba wins Tokyo Marathon for second time

  • Dickson Chumba of Kenya crosses the finish line to win the Tokyo Marathon 2018 in Tokyo Japan

Chumba, who previously won at the Japanese capital in 2014, reigned supreme in the men's competition as he won in 2hours, 5 minutes and 30seconds.

It was the second time in two years that Kipsang, who set a world record of 2:03:23 in 2013, has suddenly stopped running in a World Majors marathon, having failed to finish in Berlin last September. Second-place finisher Yuta Shitara set a Japanese record with his time of 2:06:11. American Amy Cragg also ran a massive PR of 2:21:42 (previous PR: 2:27:03) to finish third in the women's race.

This year's race, which marked the 12th, had about 36,000 participants.

Hiroto Inoue improved on his 2017 eighth-place result and finished fifth in 2:06:54, and compatriot Ryo Kiname was seventh in 2:08:08.

Trailing six runners with just under 10km to go, Shitara ran like a man possessed to pass all but one of them. He raised his first in celebration, broke the tape in 2:06:11 - five seconds under the old record, and a PR of nearly three minutes - and collapsed to the ground, completely spent from a history marathon effort. "Next year I'll try to run 2:04", he said.

That is incredible strength and depth and putting it into perspective only five British men have broken the 2:09 barrier in total, never mind a single race.

Dibaba pulled away from there to win in 2 hours, 19 minutes, 51 seconds.

Just as in London, Cragg had to dig incredibly deep late in the late stages of the race as she had come through 30k on 2:20:27 pace before starting to struggle over the final 10 kilometers.

Wolrd Championships bronze medalist Cragg becomes only the fifth American to run sub 2:22.

In the women's category, Ethiopia's Dibaba claimed the Tokyo Marathon for the second time in her career.
