Gezahagn Zelalem of Ethiopia improved his personal best to 2:07:56 on his way to taking second place with Berhane Tesfay of Eritrea collecting third place at 2:08:10. The top five men’s finishers in today’s contest was completed by Germany’s Sebastian Hendel at 2:10:37 for fourth and Edwin Kimaiyo of Kenya (2:11:02).
Meanwhile, the women’s 2022 Generali München Marathon title went to Agnes Keino who surprised race pre-race favorite Mare Dibaba, who came into the race aiming for not just a win but a fast time.
Keino ran unchallenged for the most part on her way to clocking 2:23:26 for a new personal best, with Dibaba disappointedly taking second at 2:24:12 and third going to Souad Kabouchia of Morocco (2:27:35).
