Edna Kiplagat (Nike) bounced back from her Olympic disappointment with a massive PB of 67:41 at this morning’s Great North Run half-marathon, finishing second to Tirunesh Dibaba’s 67:35. Edna crushed her former PB by 1:19 while going on-on-one with Olympic 5/10 champion Dibaba over the final few hundred meters.

Reigning South African Half-Marathon champ Rene Kalmer (Nedbank/adidas) also followed up her Olympic marathon with a PB today, running a very nice 70:13 for 6th place.


And Freya Murray (adidas) made it three-for-three for our trio of Olympic marathoners today, running a PB also, with 72:23 for 9th place, very impressive in the midst of her wedding planning!
