Article source: Athletics


Lawrence Cherono broke his own Amsterdam marathon course record on Sunday, October 21.

The Amsterdam proved once again that it has one of the fastest marathon courses on the planet as the top 3 men broke 2 hours and 5-minute barrier. 

Kenya's Lawrence Cherono clocked a new course record and personal best of  2h04:06. Two Ethiopian runners, Mule Wasihun and Solomon Deksisa who finished second and third also ran faster than the old course record clocking 2h04:37 PB and  2h04:40 PB respectively.

"The weather was good, the wind slow and we had to run faster than last year. I thank God for giving me this talent and I hope to be here once again next year," Cherono said.

Multiple worlds and Olympic champion Kenenisa Bekele dropped out at 41km. Since running 2:03:03 in Berlin in 2016, Bekele has dropped out of three of his five marathons.
