In the men’s race during the Berlin marathon, Guye Adola came on top to clinch the first spot for Ethiopia. The race began at a fast pace but Adola sustained the advantage finished the race in two hours five minutes 45 seconds. Kenya’s Bethwel Yegon and Adola’s compatriot Kenenisa Bekele finished at two and three respectively. Bekele is the two-time winner of the event.

Meanwhile, in the women’s race, Gotytom Gebreslase made a stunning debut and finished at first place with a time of two hours 20 minutes, and nine seconds. Her compatriots Hiwot Gebrikidan and Helen Tola finished at the second and third spot respectively.

The race started off really fast - the leading pack couldn't maintain that pace, so I took my chance to hit the front.
