• Moen Crashes European Record with 2:05:48 in Fukuoka Marathon

Article source: Athletics


Norway’s Sondre Moen clocked an impressive 2:05:48 to win 2017 Fukuoka International marathon on Sunday, December 3.

Moen broke the European marathon record on Sunday in Japan of 2:05:48 and became the first none-African borne athlete to break 2:06 mark on a record-eligible course.

“I was confident that I could run 2:07, and on a good day perhaps even 2:06, but I did not expect 2:05,” said Moen,who set a Norwegian half marathon record of 59:48 in Valencia in October. “Today the weather was good and the pacers did a very good job. I had lots of energy in the closing stages of the race.”

The 2012 Olympic champion Stephen Kiprotich of Uganda finished in (2:07:10) while Suguru Osako was third with a new personal best time of  2:07:19.

Moen’s 2:05:45 is the second-fastest time in Fukuoka marathon history, just 30 seconds shy of Tsegaye Kebede’s course record.
