Consolation for Catherine
- Updated: April 28, 2009
Despite only placing seventh in the London Marathon on Sunday, Kenya’s Catherine Ndereba, 36, was still making history.
The 2003 and 2007 world marathon champion and double Olympic silver medallist clocked 2hr 26min 22sec behind Germany’s Irina Mikitenko (2:22:11).
But her time still meant she equalled the long-standing record for the most sub-2:30 marathons, an achievement in itself and a powerful indication of the outstanding stature of her long career.
This was the 21st sub-2:30 time of her marathon career which began in 1999 and puts her even with Germany’s Katrin Dorre who achieved the same number between 1984 and 1999.
