Kenyan Jacob Kibet wins the marathon in Santiago with supremacy



He left and arrived in front of the Palacio de La Moneda after a couple of quarters in the center and east of Santiago, with the first half of the uphill racing that was brighter than a mile 32 down the slope when the runners entered Alamed's capital to meet the goal.

Kenyan rider Jacob Kibet won first place at the marathon in Santiago on Sunday, in a race where no one could face him and the winner ended with 2 hours, 13 minutes and 15 seconds.

From the beginning, the champion proved his proposal under the sun of the Chilean capital and marked the strong pace of the entire race to avoid problems with other rivals in the last third of 42 kilometers.

He left and arrived in front of the Palacio de La Moneda after a couple of quarters in the center and east of Santiago, with the first half of the uphill racing that was brighter than a mile 32 down the slope when the runners entered Alamed's capital to meet the goal.

This roundabout, which has traveled through the capital's main avenues for the past 10 kilometers, had the highest point at 675 meters, which was 30 miles away.

In addition to Kibeta, in the women's section, the race was taken by her fellow countryman Gladys Jepkemoi, who finished the last 2 hours and 36 minutes.

Except for 42 kilometers, there were also 21 and 10 kilometers of tests that completed more than 33,000 racers during the morning between the three tests, which were held at temperatures that hit 30 degrees at the end of the marathon.

In the semifinals he won the Peruvian Waldir Ureta with a score of 1 hour, 6 minutes and 40 seconds, while 10 kilometers was awarded to Chilean Matíasu Silvi to cross the goal after 28 minutes and 3 seconds.
